QUESTIONS FROM THE LORD

This reflection is based on John 14:1-12.

He’s the disciple who always seems to be getting the tough questions from the Lord. When they found themselves surrounded by a hungry crowd of 5000, our Lord turned to Philip and asked him, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”

Of course, Philip said what any rational person would:“It would take more than half a year’s wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

THE ARCHITECTURE OF GOD’S HEART

This Sunday reflection is based on John 14:1-12.
