Almighty and eternal God,

you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit,                                                                                         

and live and reign in the perfect unity of love.

now and forever.

Gospel Reading: John 16:12 - 15

"I have much more to tell you, but now it would be too much for you to bear.

When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, he will lead you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own authority, but he will speak of what he hears and will tell you of things to come.

He will give me glory, because he will take what I say and tell it to you.

All that my Father has is mine; that is why I said that the Spirit will take what I give him and tell it to you.

A suggestion:

  1. Read the passage slowly to yourself. Choose one word or phrase which stands out for you and meditate on that word or phrase. How does it relate to how you feel today?
