READINGS:

1 R : Acts 4: 23 - 31.
Ps  2 : 1 - 3, 4 - 6, 7 - 9.
Gos : Jn 3 :  1 - 8.

BOTH THE FIRST READING AS WELL AS THE GOSPEL GIVE ONE COMMON MESSAGE.

ONE NEEDS TO BE REBORN TO ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?

IN THE FIRST READING SEE THE ' REBIRTH ' OF APOSTLES AND FIRST CHRISTIANS. THE LIFE OF TIMIDITY AND WORLDLY IDEALS IS GONE AND WE HAVE THE COURAGEOUS AND SPIRITUALLY   ' SLANTING '  TRANSFORMED APOSTLES.

IN THE GOSPEL NICODEMUS INITIALLY TAKES JESUS' WORDS LITERALLY OR RATHER BIOLOGICALLY.
JESUS EXPLAINS TO HIM THE REAL MEANING OF GETTING REBORN, THAT IS TO LIVE BY THE WATER OF BAPTISM AND FIRE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

SHOULD I NOT BE A  " BORN AGAIN PERSON " IN THE REAL SENSE ?
