Today's Gospel Reading

Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me. In my Father's house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, I would have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be. Where I am going you do not not know the way." Thomas said to him, "Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Right after the gospel, an old song that me and my siblings sing came to my mind. It goes:

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and His banner over me is love.

Then we would sing it several more times, but it would go higher and higher and higher. Pretty soon, we all would get off tune and laugh until our stomachs hurt and we start the next verse.

We are the flock, and He is the Shepherd, His banner over me is love.

It was the same thing all over again, we would go higher and off tune and laugh and laugh. There were also hand motions, but I forgot how it goes. Anyway, even though we would always get off tune, we kept in mind that no matter how off tune we would get, He would be the way of the song. :-)
