Some Greeks who had come to worship at the Passover Feast came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, "Sir, we would like to see Jesus." Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. Jesus answered them, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me."
OFFERING OF THE DAY
BY ST THERESE
My Lord, I offer You all the actions I did today, for the intentions and the glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; I would like to sanctify the beating of my heart, my thoughts and my most simple work by joining them to His most infinite merits, to repair my faults by throwing them in the blaze of His Merciful Love. O my God I ask You for myself and for those I love for the grace to accomplish perfectly Your holy wish, to accept for Your Love the joys and pains of this passage that is life so that one day we can be reunited in Heaven for all eternity.
