Dear Friend in the Lord,
“The Paraclete” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus says to His disciples, “The Paraclete will show the world how wrong it is about sin; and their refusal to believe in Me.” Ponder on, “We are easily influenced by the secular world’s materialism, glory and gratification. Only through the Paraclete, can we live our lives more like Jesus and be deeply fulfilled.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Now I am going to the one who sent me. Not one of you asks, “Where are you going?” Yet you are sad at heart because I have told you this. Still, I am telling you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going, because unless I go, the Paraclete will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
‘And when he comes, he will show the world how wrong it was, about sin, and about who was in the right, and about judgement: about sin: in that they refuse to believe in me; about who was in the right: in that I am going to the Father and you will see me no more; about judgement: in that the prince of this world is already condemned.’
