“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘In a short time you will no longer see me, and then a short time later you will see me again.’”

John 16:16-20

This week, we are called to reflect on these words ‘In a short time’… When we are open and connected to Jesus even for a short time, we can receive so much, his peace, hope, joy, and nourishment. A short time in prayer can make such a difference to our faith.

Do we allocate time to pray? Do make excuses not to pray? Do we take our prayer life seriously? Do we look forward to have a dialogue with Jesus each day?

We are all-short on time, however, we need to make the effort to be with Jesus and allow his Word into our hearts, because his Word gives us life, peace, strength and courage.
