Gospel text (Jn 14:23-29): "The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you." Jesus said to his disciples: “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, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe.”

Today Jesus still addresses us with farewell words. He says that if we love him, he and the Father will be with us. What a joy it is to know that God is so close to those who love him! And for our comfort, They will send us their Love, the Holy Spirit, to guide us.

-God is a small Divine Family: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Three Persons who are a very united "Divine Home"!
