Today's first reading is the revelation of God's mysterious name "I AM." Scripture scholars today often interpret this as "I am who I am with you"--putting the stress on the relationship between God and his people. The Gospel is one that riveted Blessed James Alberione's attention 100 years ago: "Come to me, all of you." There's a marvelous connection here. "Come to Me, I am with you!" The Exodus story also sheds light on the Gospel invitation, "Come, Follow me."
