From today’s Gospel, from St John: ‘But when the Counsellor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me …’

St John Chrysostom commented: ‘He called It not Holy Spirit, but Spirit of Truth. But the ‘proceeds from the Father’, shows that He knows all things exactly, as Christ also says of Himself, that ‘I know whence come and whither I go’, speaking in that place also concerning truth. ‘Whom will send’: Behold, it is no longer the Father alone, but the Son also who sends’.

Today, let us open ourselves profoundly to the Spirit of Truth, ensuring by the grace of God that everything in our lives is in tune with that Truth. May God bless you this day.
