Jesus' promise at the Last Supper is alive today

He is with us and we are invited to be with Him

At the Last Supper, Jesus reassured His apostles that He would be with them always. This 2,000-year-old promise, heard in Sunday’s Gospel, is ours today. Jesus promises us an Advocate, a Spirit of truth. He promises to come to us. And He asks us to love Him and love others.

Reflection questions:
  1. To know and love Jesus is to know joy. Do others see this joy in me?
  2. As Christians, we have a reason to hope. How do I share this hope gently and reverently with others?
  3. Do I love Jesus and others? What, if anything, has it cost me?
