Gospel Reflection Wednesday (25 May) – 6th week of Easter – The Spirit will lead you to the truth
Today Fr Paul reads from the Gospel of John (16: 12-15) in which Jesus said to his disciples, ‘I still have many things to say to you, but they would be too much for you now but when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you to the complete truth’.
Fr Paul says throughout every human era, and from every generation that has ever existed, there has always been a slightly different mentality or way of thinking. For example, our current generation is currently into the whole area of social media.
Each and every generation and era will use different ways and means. It will ask different questions. It will use different terminology. And throughout all this the guidance of the Spirit will be needed to translate the truth in ways that are relevant to each and every era and generation.
Fr Paul says today we remember that the Spirit is needed to guide us on the way forward. The Spirit is needed so that we can communicate the truth to others.
Today we pray, come Holy Spirit and be with us always. Be our guide and help us translate and transmit the truth to new generations.
