"We want to see Jesus..."

 I was able to attend mid-day prayer and Eucharist this Tuesday and the ANCA lectionary that was preached on was John 12:20-30. Hearing the passage sparked my memory, I was able to share a little homily last year at Nashotah House Theological Seminary (where I was attending seminary at the time). 

That question/statement in v.21 is striking! "Sir, we wish to see Jesus." As is Jesus' response to the men. 

I hope I always desire to see Jesus and, by the power of the Spirit, am ready to participate in the way of life he will show me.
