He was so excited! He couldn’t wait to introduce Him to his friend. “Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the one about whom Moses wrote in the law, and also the prophets, Jesus son of Joseph, from Nazareth.’” Philip met Jesus Christ and believed that He truly was the Son of God, the Messiah. He didn’t want to keep this to himself but wanted to share that news with everybody else. That’s why he runs to Nathanael to share with him that exciting news: We have found God, come and see, I want you to meet Him. Many of us Christians have much to learn from Philip’s excitement. How many of us share with the world the news about Jesus Christ? We too have found Him, He is among us, He is present in the Eucharist. But do you leave Mass very excited, or anxious to share that news with others and bring them back? Just like Philip, we should not only rejoice by being with Christ, we are also called to bring others to Him.
