Jesus said: “My people, in today’s Gospel reading I want to focus you on one statement: ‘I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.’ This vision of an open Bible is showing you the way to heaven by My Word in the Gospels. When you read the accounts of My life, I am giving you a life of love to imitate. St. Thomas asked Me where is this way, but I offer you eternal life so you can follow the path to heaven. This path is the same way to Calvary that each one of you must pick up your cross and carry. You share your everyday suffering with My suffering on the cross. The Way of the Cross is not desired by the body or worldly people, but it is the only way to prove your faith in My words. I have also given you the words when you know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free of the bonds of your sins. There is truth in all of My words that you can read in the Gospels. You can depend on Me that I will never lead you astray, and I will always love you. This is contrary to Satan who can mix in lies with true facts, but he always hates you. While I was on trial before Pilate, I told him that I was born to testify to the Truth. Everyone who belongs to the Truth listens to My voice. One of the most profound statements that I gave on Life was when I talked to Martha right before I raised Lazarus from the dead. (John 11:25,26) ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life; whoever believes in Me, even if he dies, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.’ This is a contrast between the life of the body and eternal life of the soul. Once you come to heaven, you will truly have life to the fullest. Only after the final judgment will you be reunited with your body and you will be made whole again. This eternal life with Me in the beatific vision is the ultimate goal of your soul.”
