In this weekend's Gospel reading, Jesus tells his disciples that he is going to prepare a place for them in his Father’s house. Thomas asks, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, so how can we know the way to get there?” Jesus replies, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." His answer is simple and profound. Jesus is the WAY. He is the Good Shepherd, guiding us on our journey, and leading us to God, our Father. Knowing Jesus is the only way to truly know our Father in heaven.
