On Today’s Gospel

Posted: May 8, 2013 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Aren’t  we often impatient warning to know and understand our faith at an instant? Looking for quick solutions, even praying for the Holy Spirit to hasten our knowledge and understanding? Or wanting to reap the fruits of our labour before they are ripe? Sharing Jesus with nonbelievers or fallen away believers and disheartened that the seed had not taken root?

All in God’s time which is always a good time! St Paul reminds us in 1 Cor 13:4-7, love is patient and it rejoices in the truth.  Where does faith, knowledge and truth stem from? Is it not from the one true source of Love, our one triune and ever living God?

From the hands of Jesus His Spirit, His love is poured out on us, what measure are we ready to bear? Amen

John 16:12–15

Jesus said to his disciples:“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”
