The will of the One who sent me

“Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day.” (JN 6: 36-40)

Our Lord was sent by His Father to save us and to redeem us. Whatever Jesus did was firstly—to honor His Father and secondly—to complete the mission, which was given to Him. The Eucharist is the summary of it: the most intimate dialog between Our Lord and His Father and the mystery of our redemption. We are invited to Mass not as observers but as children, and as a children we are loved—with all our limits, conditions, sins and weaknesses: “I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me.”

“Everyone who believes in the Son has eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
