Geeky Catholic Sunday: The Sixth Sunday of Easter 2019

Gospel Reading: John 14:23-29

Highlight: "And we will come to him and make our dwelling with him."

Reflection: Think of the people in your life that you always want to be near. What is it about these people that you love? I'm sure it varies from person to person, but it is always their good qualities that you find so attractive. The way they make you laugh, or the fact that you can be totally honest with them. With true friends, it is the way they inspire you to be a better person, or the forgiveness they will offer you if you do something wrong. Imagine someone who has all of these good qualities - and more - and who possesses them to a perfect degree. Surely that is someone you'd want to spend time with, someone whose side you would never leave. That "someone" is God, and being with him forever is our ultimate goal as Christians. We have hope and faith that one day we will be able to spend eternity in perfect union with God.

Geeky Quote: "As the ages passed the Vanyar grew to love the land of the Valar and the full light of the Trees, and they forsook the city of Tirion upon Túna, and dwelt thereafter upon the mountain of Manwë." - The Silmarillion

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I know that you have prepared a place for me with you. I want to be with you forever, praising you and delighting in your presence. Amen.
