Gospel of John 16:12-15 Reflection:
Today's Gospel speaks about the Holy Spirit being being sent to us. Jesus is giving us a key to understanding how to discern the source of the Holy Spirit: "when the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth...He will glorify me"
Love and unity are the cornerstones of Jesus' ministry on earth and so the Holy Spirit continues with the same ministry. If we encounter something in our lives that pulls us away from truth - from the church and the teachings of Jesus, we need to stop and think of where the source of this pull is coming from. For if it is from God, it will be coming through Jesus who will send the Holy Spirit - they are all one, all love and all unity.
