Christ revealed the Father
When our Lord was on this earth, he revealed the heavenly Father. It was only through him that we knew how much love the Father has for us. The Father so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son to save it. The night of the Last Supper, Philip said to Jesus, “Show us the Father.” Our Lord replied, “Philip, have I been with you all this time and still you do not understand the Father and I are one?” It was the Father’s love that sent the Son, so that our Lord was a kind of a prism. Just as when the earthly sun shines through a prism and splits the light into the seven rays of the spectrum, so too our Lord reveals the full love and goodness of the heavenly Father.
