Gospel: John 14:6-14
Jesus answers, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through Me.” Three important words. 
Without the way, we cannot walk. A “way” is not only a path, but a method of performing or doing. In this case, His way is to be our way. Without the truth one cannot make a good choice. In life, things are not always what they seem to be. It is important to focus on the Truth and not be deceived. He is the Truth. Without life, there is only death! Jesus explains the meaning. He is the way, because no one “comes to the Father except through Me”. 
And He is the gate through which the sheep go in and out. Jesus is the Truth because looking at Him, we are seeing the image of the Father. “If you know Me, you will know My Father also!” Jesus is Life, because walking like Jesus we will be united to the Father and will have life in us!
Jesus says that His intimacy with the Father is not a privilege only for Him, but it is possible for all those who believe in Him. In his recent encyclical Gaudete et exsultate, Pope Francis quotes Lumen Gentium: “The Holy Spirit bestows holiness in abundance among God’s holy and faithful people, for “it has pleased God to make men and women holy and to save them, not as individuals without any bond between them, but rather as a people who might acknowledge him in truth and serve him in holiness”
