Prayer of the Day
Fifth Week of Easter – Feast of St. ConlethMay 4th, 2015
“If anyone loves me he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come and make our home with him. Those who do not love me do not keep my words. And my word is not my own: it is the word of the one who sent me. I have said these to you while still with you; But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you all I have said to you.”
Jesus has taken us into relationship with the Father, “we shall come to him and make our dwelling in him.” The emphases is on ‘dwelling’ There is mention of his departure, “I have said many things while still with you, the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name will teach you everything, and remind you of all I have said to you.” The Holy Spirit is the promise of Jesus’ close presence with the disciples.
