Reflections of the Day
"The Spirit will guide you into all the truth".
Jesus makes a claim which only God can make - he knows all things - the present and the past,
as well as the future. Jesus not only claims to speak the truth, he calls himself the very source of
truth when he proclaims that he is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Now Jesus
promises to send his disciples the Spirit of truth who will guide them in understanding all that
Jesus came to say and do! Jesus tells his disciples that it is the role of the Holy Spirit to reveal
what is true. It is through the gift and working of the Holy Spirit, who enlightens our hearts and
minds, that we come to understand that the Godhead is a trinity of persons - Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit.
The Jews understood God as Creator and Father of all that he made (Deuteronomy 32:6) and
they understood the nation of Israel as God's firstborn son (Exodus 4:22). Jesus reveals the
Father in an unheard of sense. He is eternally Father by his relationship to his only-begotten
Son, who, reciprocally, is Son only in relation to his Father (see Matthew 11:27). The Spirit,
likewise, is inseparably one with the Father and the Son. Jesus reveals the triune nature of God
and the inseparable union of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The mission of Jesus and of the
Holy Spirit are the same - to reveal the glory of God and to share that glory with us by uniting
us in a community of love with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That is why Jesus tells his
disciples that the Spirit will reveal the glory of the Father and the Son and will speak what is
true. Before his Passover, Jesus revealed the Holy Spirit as the 'Paraclete' and Helper who will
be with Jesus' disciples to teach and guide them "into all the truth" (John 14:17,26; 16:13). The
ultimate end, the purpose for which God created us, is the entry of God's creatures into the
perfect unity of the blessed Trinity. In baptism we are called to share in the life of the Holy
Trinity here on earth in faith and after death in eternal light.
Clement of Alexandria (150-215 AD), an early church father and teacher at the catechetical
school in Alexandria, wrote: "What an astonishing mystery! There is one Father of the
universe, one Logos (Word) of the universe, and also one Holy Spirit, everywhere one and the
same; there is also one virgin become mother, and I should like to call her 'Church'."
How can we personally know the Father and his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ? It is the Holy
Spirit who reveals the Father and the Son to us and who gives us the gift of faith to know and
understand the truth of Gods word. Through the Holy Spirit, we proclaim our ancient faith in
the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ until he comes again. The Lord gives us his
Holy Spirit as our divine Teacher and Helper that we may grow in the knowledge and wisdom
of God. Do you seek the wisdom that comes from above and do you eagerly listen to God's
word and obey it?



We Pray:
"May the Lord Jesus put his hands on our eyes also, for then we too shall begin to look not at
what is seen but at what is not seen. May he open the eyes that are concerned not with the
present but with what is yet to come, may he unseal the heart's vision, that we may gaze on God
in the Spirit, through the same Lord, Jesus Christ, whose glory and power will endure
throughout the unending succession of ages." (prayer of Origin, 185-254 AD)
