Dear Friend in the Lord,
Holy Spirit – Discipleship: In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples, “I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth . . .” Jesus adds that when we live the faith with fidelity, the Holy Spirit will always give us the wisdom, courage and perseverance we need regardless of the trials and challenges we encounter.
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘When the Advocate comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who issues from the Father, he will be my witness. And you too will be witnesses, because you have been with me from the outset.
‘I have told you all this so that your faith may not be shaken. They will expel you from the synagogues, and indeed the hour is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is doing a holy duty for God. They will do these things because they have never known either the Father or myself. But I have told you all this, so that when the time for it comes you may remember that I told you.’
