“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you for ever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.” – John 14:16-17

This weekend’s Gospel reading reminds us that through the joys and challenges of life, we are never left alone.  We have our brothers and sisters in Christ and we have the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, wh advocates for us, comforts us, leads us, and guides us in all of Christ’s ways.  We have the Spirit of Christ who is with us and for us and going ahead of us with grace, peace, and love.
