Readings for Mass
‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you (NRSV, John 16:12-15).”
Let us pray.
So often, Lord, we resist the one truth that you speak to us always and everywhere through your Word in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the fullness of your revelation in the flesh. Yet, after two thousand years of faith in the Church we still need to grow in our understanding of him and therefore of you, Father, Son and Spirit.
Your Word is always present to us. The power of the Spirit is always available to us. May we cast off our sinful ways, our prejudices and preconceptions, that we may grow in your truth and in the divine life that you offer to us.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
