About Today Readings

Day of penance

1 John 3:11–21. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy – Psalm 99(100). John 1:43–51.

An invitation to all of us to share God’s love

Jesus invites Philip to follow him and, it seems, immediately Philip is inviting others to come along. Something has captured his attention. Intrigued, expectant, he has been captured by love, and he wants to share it. As today’s first reading so clearly articulates, to love is the core invitation, and indeed obligation, of the Gospel. This is the Good News. Philip shares with his friends the source of this love, in whom he comes to believe, Jesus Christ.
