Read: John 14:25-26 and Psalm 29
Jesus is talking to his disciples at the last supper. He has told them that the Father has been revealed in him, and that they together will dwell within them. Then we come to today’s selection. “I’ve been here with you physically, and I’m telling you these things now. But the Father is sending the Holy Spirit to you to guide you, teach you, and to bring to your remembrance everything I’ve said.”
Ordinary Time is about the Holy Spirit revealing Christ to us. It is about growth. It is about learning to be disciples. It is about being an example, a light in a dark world. Jesus wants us to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that those around us can know him as well.
Allow the Holy Spirit to dwell within you, guiding and teaching you. Ask God to help you with this. Write your own prayer.
