June 12, 2022: Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
Gospel: John 16:12-15
“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.”
Jesus is our benefactor, always giving selflessly to us and for us. He tells us that when the Spirit of truth comes to us, he will guide us, too. He will speak what he hears and declare it to us. But are we listening? I know I spend too much time talking, always asking, and very little time in silence.
This week, spend time in silence every day allowing that voice to penetrate and offer us comfort, peace and tranquility. And then, you may find guidance.
Thank you for the reminder to listen, Cathy. Not my strong suit.
