Today's reading is full of beautiful promises which are powerful mystical promises about the life of the Christian.
Basically we are told that if we love Jesus and keep his commandments that Jesus shall come to us and show himself to us. Even more beautiful is the promise that if we keep Jesus' word that the Father and Jesus shall come and take up residence in us.
We also have the promise that the Holy Spirit comes and teaches us everything and shall remind us of all that Jesus said. Such are the promises of our faith.
Why do we not experience them more? Is it because self concern and worry about life stand in our way? Perhaps we should try to trust in the Lord a bit more!
Please pray for my brother Des Quinn who died yesterday. May the Lord have mercy on his soul.
