As Jesus tells his Apostles, whoever has seen him has seen the Father.

This Sunday's Gospel passage occurs during the Last Supper as Jesus tells his apostles he is going to prepare a place for them. They do not understand because they do not yet know that Jesus is the way. Jesus tries to explain that he and the Father are one. Discuss these questions with your family:
  • For you, what does it mean to "follow the way?" How could you do it this week?
  • Jesus says whoever sees him has seen God the Father. Who is a sign of God for you? Are you a sign of God for others?
  • Jesus says we can do what he did. How will you make your world a better place this week?
