About Today Readings

St Pius V.

Acts 14:5-18. Psalm 113B(115):1-4, 15-16. John 14:21-26.

Not to us, O Lord, but to your name give the glory—Psalm 113B(115):1-4, 15-16.

The Holy Spirit, who the Father will send, will teach you all things.

In my prayerful reflection today I will endeavour to hear the words of Jesus recorded in this Gospel extract from his supper discourse as if they were addressed to me personally. Calling me by name, Jesus says to me: ‘If you love me, you will keep my word and my Father will love you and we will come to you and make our home with you.’

To me he promises to send the Holy Spirit who will teach me everything and remind me of all that he has said to me. O Lord, may I never forget your steadfast love and faithfulness. Draw me ever more closely to yourself and open my ears to hear your saving word, to understand it more fully and to live my life in accordance with it.
