John 12:20-23 Reflection – Christ Glorified

Reflection on John 12:20-23

When you think of Christ Glorified what is your image?  Is he in the upper room with visible wounds, perhaps the transfiguration scene, maybe gracefully rising into Heaven? Imagine for a moment instead that you have just received the Glorified Jesus Christ in Eucharist. What comes to mind? For me faith wells up, I am surrounded in peace and love and re-energized with the mission of helping ripple Jesus’s Glory within outward.

Some Greeks Wish to See Jesus

20 Now among those who went up to worship at the festival were some Greeks. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and said to him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went and told Andrew; then Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. 23 Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
