Encounters with myself … others … Life !
that final night of Jesus’s life on earth – as he prepared to bid farewell to his friends. He knew that on the morrow, their grief and loss at the loss of their Master, ‘Rabboni’, would be compounded by fear and confusion; their world – which began with a triumphant entry into Jerusalem just five days previously, would come tumbling down.
How can he console them, comfort them, give them hope that all is not lost. How can he assure them of His love for them and the Father’s love ?
How would you say farewell to friends and family if you know you are going to die the next day ?
I’d like to share a previous post on the words of love that kept pouring out of Our Lord as he gazed on his disciples gathered around him in person for the last time. Please click on the link which shares how our Master bid farewell to his friends, and his instructions and guidance to us.
