Those poor Greeks. Did you notice that they never actually got to meet Jesus? At the start of today’s gospel some Greeks who are followers of Jesus come to Jerusalem. They are travellers, outsiders, and would like to meet Jesus in person. But when Philip and Andrew relay the request, Jesus begins to talk about how his "hour" is coming. It is the last we hear of the Greeks, who disappear from the story altogether.

But they are important nonetheless. Firstly they indicate that word about Jesus is spreading, that in the words of the Pharisees, "the world has gone after him." More importantly they prompt Jesus to reveal that, when his hour comes, he will draw "all people" to himself. In the space of a few short verses we go from a brief mention of a group of foreigners seeking Jesus, to Jesus making it crystal clear that his saving mission is for all people, of all nations, both Jews and Gentiles – including those Greeks! There is no suggestion that some groups are "in" and others are "out." All are included. All are invited. All are welcome.

I remember once hearing someone describe their home as a domestic church, a place of "indiscriminate welcome." As we continue our journey through Lent, and soon into Holy Week, let us listen carefully to those words of Jesus. He came for all. He wishes to draw all people to himself. Are out churches, parishes, communities and homes open to all, outsiders included? Are they places of welcome and inclusion, where all who enter experience God’s love?
