Liturgical day: Monday 5th of Easter

Gospel text (Jn 14,21-26): «The Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will remind you of all that I have told you». Jesus said to his disciples, «Whoever keeps my commandments is the one who loves me. If he loves me, he will also be loved by my Father; I too shall love him and show myself clearly to him». Judas —not the Iscariot— asked Jesus, «Lord, how can it be that you will show yourself clearly to us and not to the world?». Jesus answered him, «If anyone loves me, he will keep my word and my Father will love him; and we will come to him and make a room in his home. But if anyone does not love me, he will not keep my words, and these words that you hear are not mine but the Father's who sent me. I told you all this while I was still with you. From now on the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of all that I have told you».

Today, Jesus Christ tells us two very important things. The first one: if I want to love the Lord, I must abide by the Commandments of the Law of God. If I do, then something very great will happen: God will come to me and will dwell in my heart.

In addition, Jesus announces that from Heaven, the Father and He will send us Their Love, the Holy Spirit. God the Holy Spirit is the Consoler because He lives inside us and helps us to understand the teachings of Jesus.

— To open your heart to God, you just have to tell him: -Jesus, come to me!
