MY daily reflection and prayer:

Feast of St. Bartholomew, the Apostle

Dear my friends,
Here is the Gospel for us today according to John 1:45-51

Philip found Nathanael, and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!” Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You shall see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

This is the Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ.


TODAY is the feast of St. Bartholomew, The Apostle. He is also known as Nathaniel. He is friend of Philip.

When Philip tried to convince him that Jesus was the Messiah, whom Moses and the prophets had foretold, he was very skeptical. He didn’t think it was possible for the Messiah to come from Nazareth, a town in Galilee. So he said, “How could anything good come from such a place?” But Philip said to him, “Come and see.”

Nathaniel then come to Jesus and encounter him. From this moment we know Nathaniel as a skeptical but earnest searching for God’s truth. And aencounter with the person of Jesus Christ changed his life forever. Jesus Christ opened his heart by calling him a true “Israelite in whom there is no guile.”

In the Perpetual Adoration of the Eucharist, we come and see Jesus Christ. We learn to be receptive to the word of Jesus Christ. We see his love in action, then he, through the power of the Holy Spirit, touches our hearts and opens our minds to his revelation as the Heavenly Bread of Life.

Let’s pray: Lord Jesus Christ, you give us free access to God’s presence and your love.
You open the way for us to ascend to heaven and to bring heaven to earth in the daily circumstances of our lives in the Sacrament of Eucharist and the Perpetual Adoration of the Eucharist. May we see with the eyes of faith what you have done for us. May we always seek you and strive to do your will forever and ever. Amen.
