August 24 2016 Hope: Same-Day-Delivery?!

Amidst our trials and concerns, do we find the hope we desire?  In John’s Gospel, Philip approaches Nathanael and makes one of the world’s most remarkable claims:  “we have found the one about whom Moses wrote”!  Then, invited to “come and see”, Nathanael has a sublime encounter with Our Lord:  “before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree”.  What did he see?  It must have been Nathanael’s heart beating for God!  Jesus sees our hearts beating and desires the same intimate encounter with us.
