Because the Spirit of the Risen Christ is in us we can face our own crosses with confidence that God is still at work, that God’s will is done even when it is thwarted, as it so often is.
Sixth Sunday of Easter (A)
15 If you love me you will keep my commandments.
16 I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Paraclete to be with you for ever,
17 the Spirit of truth whom the world can never accept since it neither sees nor knows him; but you know him, because he is with you, he is in you.
18 I shall not leave you orphans; I shall come to you.
19 In a short time the world will no longer see me; but you will see that I live and you also will live.
20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.
21 Whoever holds to my commandments and keeps them is the one who loves me; and whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love him and reveal myself to him.’
