“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows him. But you know him, because he remains with you, and will be in you.
I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.
Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.’”
Sit with the impact of Jesus’ words.
Which of Jesus’ words give you the most peace?
Ask God to allow that peace to take root in you so you can witness it this week.
Heritage word—“. . . you must let God act freely in you. Do less yourself, and you will see that the good God will do his work in you in peace and quiet.”
(St. Julie Billiart, Spiritual Mother of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
