Gospel Reflection for Kids
In today’s gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that His father’s house has many dwelling places. And He says that He will go there to prepare a place for them. When they ask Jesus about how to get there, Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”
The house that Jesus is talking about is like the Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus often called the Temple His Father’s house.
Today, there is no longer a Temple in Jerusalem. But Jesus was really talking about preparing a place for us in the Church, and one day in heaven!
You see, in the Church, we can be with the Father while we are on Earth, and heaven is the place that we can be with Him after we leave Earth.
