Serving the Word: John 15: 26-16: 4a


John 15, 26-16, 4a:
“When the Paraclete comes, which I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear witness to me and you too will give witness”.

Let us not lose sight of the fact that the Gospel is always new.
It is the eternal newness that is always putting itself against the old.
That always opposes everything that makes a person to be old: passivity, comfort, cowardice and selfishness,idleness…
And it is logical that everything we have that is old, both in ourselves and in the society, reveals itself and wants to annihilate everything that is new.
We will suffer in one way or another whenever we want to live the newness of the Gospel.
Jesus tells us today that we should not falter at these moments because the Holy Spirit, the Defender, will always be with us.
He will be our strength and our unwavering defense.
Today ask a lot forthe strength of the Holy Spirit that Jesus sends to us from the Father.
Good day.
