Dear Friend in the Lord,
“The Spirit of Truth” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to His disciples, “If you love Me and keep My Commandments. . . you will receive the Paraclete; the Spirit of the Truth of the Father.” Ponder on, “This Truth can only be known through the Holy Spirit sent by Jesus; pray to receive this divine Gift; as nothing else is more precious in our lives.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If you love me you will keep my commandments.
I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Paraclete to be with you for ever, the Spirit of truth whom the world can never accept since it neither sees nor knows him; but you know him, because he is with you, he is in you. I shall not leave you orphans; I shall come to you.
‘In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see that I live and
you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you. Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.’
