May 22, 2016: The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

A pilgrim watches in silence.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.” (John 16:12-15)

Reflection:

When we are learning something new, like learning to drive or cooking something we have never tried, it is best to take one step at a time. This is how Jesus taught His disciples, knowing that they could only absorb His teachings little by little. The revelation of God’s truth goes on forever. There is more than we can fully grasp in our lifetime. Only in heaven will we be capable of understanding all.

Action:

Do not become agitated when you cannot fully understand all that is happening in your life. Have faith and trust in God. Try to remain peaceful and patient waiting for answers in God’s own time.
