Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not let your hearts be troubled”.
You know me well Lord. My heart is troubled. What does this mean?
“You have faith in God; have faith also in me. “
When I walk with you Lord, I am unafraid. But you say you are going away. How will I ever cope?”
“In my Father and Mother’s house there are many dwelling places.
If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?”
I believe you Lord. But I am weak and I am afraid. Take me with you, or take away the pain, please.
“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.”
I trust you, but why must I suffer until I am with you again? What does it mean… this continual longing to be fulfilled, this desire to be with you completely? Please… don’t leave me.
“Where I am going you know the way.”
You know I love you Lord, I will follow you. But if I get lost, who will show me the way? I don’t think I can do this. I will be all alone. Who will take care of me? I can’t do this.
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jesus, only you know the truth. I am but a human being that only knows doubts and fears. Teach me to open my mind, to trust that you love me unconditionally, that every day I awake, breathing heaven on earth, you are waiting just for me. Thank you for making me a beautiful, one-of-a-kind image of your Father and Mother. Send the Holy Spirit in others who love me too, who serve to remind me that you are holding a place for me in your embrace, where we shall all be one, in love with you, and with each other.
