‘When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, he will testify on my behalf. You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning. Reflection by Janet Derby I wonder what the disciples thought as they listened to Jesus during the last weeks of his life. They seem to not understand most of the time, though I imagine I would have been the same way. How reassuring this was, and is, that we have an advocate who speaks for us, even we are unable to fully comprehend God and God’s love for all. Prayer
Empowering God, thank you for your spirit who helps comforts and strengthens us. Amen.
