Prayer for the Day:
Like the Greeks at the festival in Jerusalem, O God, we wish to see Jesus, too. Remove from our lives whatever might cause us to walk in darkness, and help us see the Light. Lead us, Lord, we pray, so that we may become children of light. Amen
Question for reflection:
Jesus fills this passage with many images: grain bearing fruit, living life as a servant, walking in the light, and becoming children of light. How do you serve God? What fruit do you bear? How can you help others “see” Jesus?
