John 16:12-15

The Word of God

Jesus said, '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.'

    • Jesus still speaks to us: prayer helps us to grow in love, in friendship, in understanding of the ways of God. The Spirit assists us, mediating God’s message, helping us to recognise how our way of living conforms to what God asks of us and revealing how it does not. Lord, strengthen my ability to receive and listen to your Spirit, to remember that your Spirit speaks your word to me.

    • Jesus presents the Trinity in terms of a divine relationship: it is a community of love. It is to be the model of all human society.
    • St Ignatius spoke of the Trinity in terms of three notes that combine to make one musical chord – each makes a profound contribution to the whole. This may or may not help us to understand the Trinity. But what is more important is that the three divine Persons understand and love us!

    • Jesus is sensitive to his followers’ limited understanding. By telling them he has more to tell them he is in a gentle way preparing them! I ask his wisdom to know when it is good to speak and when it is better to wait and be silent.
    • Jesus knows how anxious we can be both to let go of the past and to trust what the future will bring. Can I speak to him about my anxieties?

    • It is impossible to assimilate in a short period of time all that Jesus has to teach us. As our journey through life continues, the Holy Spirit gradually unfolds God’s message so that it speaks to us at appropriate times in our lives.

    • The mystery of the Trinity is difficult to put into words. One important word in considering the Trinity is 'sharing'. The three persons live in the love of sharing their truth and sharing all they are. Prayer introduces us to the mystery of God, the mystery of truth and the mystery of gift. All of God is gift; prayer is our time of allowing the gift of Father, Son and Spirit reach deeply into our lives.
    • Jesus does not abandon the one who followed him. Earthly death does not confine his word to the era of the first century. Jesus, through his Spirit. is still our guide and our way, truth and life. The Spirit unites heaven and earth, God and humanity, within each person and within each community of Jesus Christ.
    • The Father, Son and Spirit are one; they act of one accord, seeking the same good. I am invited to find myself in their relationship to one another. I prayer that I may grow in appreciation that I am created, redeemed and made holy by God's continuing action and presence.
    • As he promises us the Holy Spirit and offers us all that the Father has, Jesus gives fully of himself. I pray for generosity.
    • Jesus wants to draw me into the life of God. The mystery of the holy Trinity reminds me that God holds me in being, saves me and makes me holy.
    • Jesus spoke these words at the Last Supper, as he gathered with his disciples, sharing life with them. He realized that there was much he wanted to express but could not say, so he washed their feet, broke bread and shared wine. His words and actions comforted and strengthened them in ways that only the Holy Spirit might help them to understand.
