“These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. – John 14:25-26
Jesus is preparing the disciples for his going to the Father, and the coming of the Holy Spirit who will instruct them in the truth. This promise of the Holy Spirit is fulfilled on the Feast of Pentecost which is celebrated today, 50 days after Easter.
Jesus promised an advocate to come and instruct them in truth. The Holy Spirit, also called the Comforter, Intercessor, Guide, Revealer, Teacher, Witness, is to be with us, so we are not alone in our battles, but can rely on His gifts to come to our aide.
Today, let us turn to the third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Spirit, asking for the sevenfold gifts of grace. Wisdom. Understanding, Fortitude, Fear of the Lord, Patience, Counsel, and Knowledge. The embracing of these gifts in our lives will be manifest by the fruits of the spirit, as a testimony of our growing in faith.
Come Holy Spirit, teach us all things, that we may truly become one, in faith and love of God.
May God bless you.
