Fourth Monday of Easter

Jesus opened it with the hard trial of His death on the cross. But here He further deepens the discourse by saying that the gate is He Himself. And it is an even more effective image in expressing the basic idea: Jesus is the meaning of existence: mine, yours, that of everyone. He is the meaning, the truest and noblest content, and the condition for orientation, and reaching the goal. Jesus gives meaning to our existence because He says that by going through where He has passed (passion, death but also resurrection) we fulfill ourselves and qualify life around us.
