Reflection 7 

Text (Gospel Story) John 14:15-16, 23-26

Jesus said to his disciples, “If you love me, you will keep my commandment. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always. Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him…. I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.”

Sharing the Mission

One of the messages which the Church received from the Spirit o f God at the Vatican
