On Today’s Gospel

Everyone created in the image of God has an innate desire to know Him. It is in our spiritual DNA so to speak. It drives us to seek Him out for we know His great love is calling out to us. Some have searched and got the frequency a little off, while others way off. Then there are those who tire easily and give up, they would rather take the easy path of fashioning their own Gods to give meaning to the desire in their hearts.

Are we who are either born into or have found our one true, living God bold enough having been filled with His love and Grace to lead them all home? To share the peace and love of Christ who died so that we may live free from sin? To share the great joy and hope we have in Christ who rose from the dead that we may one day be with Him in heaven? To proclaim the Church which Christ established to lead and guide us through the Holy Spirit; To enrich, nourish, heal, and facilitate the numerous gifts and graces we receive through the Sacraments?

The Advocate knows our weaknesses and limitations. So He patiently, gently, guides and leads us into a deeper faith. He prepares us so that in union with Him we can perform our rightful duty as coheirs to the eternal Kingdom; to lead all God’s children to Him so that they too may share in our heavenly inheritance. Amen

GOSPEL
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.”
