Tuesday of 2nd week of Easter, based on John 3:7-15

Do not be astonished that I said to you, ‘You must be born from above.’ The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered him, “Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things? “Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

About Mr Mike Kelly OP

I am married to Jenny, and we have 5 grown-up children and 9 grandchildren. I have had careers in education, and as an immigration consultant. Jenny and I are part of a local Dominican family, and have been part of a preaching team that travelled widely. The thing that makes me Dominican is what Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP calls "a deep relationship between the Dominican vocation to preach, and a passion for justice".
