Philip went and told Andrew…

“Some Greeks who had come to worship at the Passover Feast came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, ‘Sir, we would like to see Jesus.’ Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus.” (JN 12: 20-22)

I have no idea why Philip went to Andrew and “then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus,” but I like the idea of being concerned, asking for help from friends, and looking for the best answers. Philip asked, but two of them went to Our Lord. It looks like it is the same with married couples who are united to meet Jesus. They ask Jesus for their children and their friends; they ask Our Lord for other couples and are so happy that people “like to see Jesus.” Probably today, more people don’t want to see Him, but still, we can ask Our Lord for help. 

“Whoever serves me must follow me, says the Lord; and where I am, there also will my servant be.” (Verse before the Gospel)
