About Today Readings

Acts 17:15, 22-18:1. Heaven and earth are filled with your glory – Psalm 148:1-2, 11-14. John 16:12-15.

The Spirit of Truth will lead you to the complete truth

This Gospel passage begins with Jesus telling his disciples: ‘I still have many things to say to you but you cannot bear them now.’ Here is Jesus pouring out the depth of his love for them as he nears his own death. His words strengthened and comforted his disciples in ways that only the Holy Spirit could help them understand. And so it is for us, as our journey through life continues. Our ability to absorb what God has to reveal to us is increased as we become more open to the ‘Spirit of Truth’ What do we believe Jesus would say to us right now? The Holy Spirit gradually reveals God’s message to us during the highs and lows experienced in our own lives. He knows only too well how anxious we can become and he helps us to let go, where necessary, of the past and to place our trust completely in him in the future.
