Here is part of today’s Gospel, from St John: ‘The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples; and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, “What do you seek?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he was staying; and they stayed with him that day’.

‘Seeing’ is a theme that occurs frequently in this reading – John ‘looked’ at Jesus … Jesus ‘saw’ them following … He says to them ‘Come and see’ … they came and ‘saw’. Later in St John, some Greeks come, saying ‘We would see Jesus’. How do we ‘see’ Him today? Where is He to be seen? He conceals Himself in the Bread and Wine of the Eucharist; in the faces of the poor and needy; in our neighbour whom we perhaps find most difficult.

Today may we ‘see’ Him in whatever way He may choose to show us Himself, and may we be greatly blessed in this.
