Luke 10:21-24 Reflection – Reveal the Father

Reflection on Luke 10:21-24 ~

It is indeed possible with our senses to hear and see that the Father is visible, by witnessing the trail of Grace and goodness God leaves in the movement of time. To have Trinity revealed directly is also possible but this understanding is not ordinarily experienced through the senses. When the Holy Spirit blesses our soul with an interior awareness of the presence of Jesus, we can truly believe that Jesus may already have, or will reveal the Father in some way to us.

Jesus Rejoices

21 At that same hour Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to infants; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 22 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”

23 Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! 24 For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”

Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 10:21-24.
