Jesus said to his disciples:
“Whoever has my commandments and observes them
is the one who loves me.
Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father,
and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him,
“Master, then what happened that you will reveal yourself to us
and not to the world?”
Jesus answered and said to him,
“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.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
yet the word you hear is not mine
but that of the Father who sent me.
“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit
whom the Father will send in my name
he will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.”
Dear Father what a consolation to know that you have sent the Holy Spirit to your apostles to teach them everything also to remind them of all that you said. Today in our day we have the benefits of that passage. We have learned to love, we have learned to follow you, we have learned to listen to the Word. May we continue to heed the Word and follow you all the days of our lives. Amen
