Sixth Sunday of Easter

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.

If we love God, He will give us the Holy Spirit to teach us how to live in accordance with God the Father’s Will. This Holy Spirit will guide our thoughts and inspire our words and works. He will enlighten our minds with eternal truths and enkindle our souls with the fires of compassion. He will grant us the graces we need to follow the commandments and thrive in righteousness. He will be a Spirit of opposition to the world, reminding us that earthly things will pass away. He helps us to detach ourselves from the world so that we can attach ourselves to heavenly and holy things. The Holy Spirit will remain with us through good and bad times, being a constant support for our faith, hope, and love. As long as we are open to Him working in our lives, then we shall have a constant companion along the way to eternal life in Paradise.

Do we show our love for God by keeping His commandments? Have we accepted the Holy Spirit into our lives? Have we allowed Him to lead us to the Way, the Truth, and the Life?

O Lord, give us the Holy Spirit to inspire, guide, and sustain us.
