Friday 3 May (Ss Philip & James)

Today is Friday the 3 May the Feast of Saints Phillip and James.  

(No introduction: 'Maranatha' by Keith Duke)

Today’s reading is from the Gospel of John.

At the start of this passage, Philip is very clear about what he wants: “Lord, show us the Father and we shall be satisfied.” What do you want from God as you start this reflection? Now take a moment or two to ask God for whatever it is that you want or need.

“If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.” What’s it like to hear Jesus make this promise?

Listen again as the one who is your way, your truth, and your life speaks to you.  

Can you carry that promise with you throughout the rest of this day? “If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.”
