His splendour transcends earth and heaven.

The words of today’s psalm, ‘He heightens the strength of his people’, reinforce our understanding of Jesus’ words as presented by John. When the Spirit of truth comes, Jesus says, we will understand the new order he brought. By being open to the Spirit, the indwelling presence of God within us, we begin to see how it can animate our lives and open doors to understandings we could never imagine.

Richard Rohr tells us: ‘The Spirit blows where it pleases, and for those of us on the journey, all we can do is listen and remain open.’ Through contemplative prayer we can tap into the Spirit always there: ‘It’s a way of living in the Presence, living in awareness of the Presence, and even of enjoying the Presence’ (Everything Belongs: The Gift of Contemplative Prayer).
