John 16: 5-11

But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, “Where are you going?” But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgement: about sin, because they do not believe in me; about righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will see me no longer; about judgement, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.

Into the Unknown

Though the Church is in the midst of the celebration of Easter, today’s Gospel takes us back before the passion. Jesus tells his disciples that he is going to the Father and will no longer be with them—their relationship with Jesus will change after the passion and resurrection. Jesus says, “But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go” so that the Spirit may come. In the light of the resurrection we see the truth in Jesus’ words but, for the disciples who first heard them, trust was likely mixed with anxiety.

Moving from the known to the new is seldom easy. The disciples wanted Jesus to stay as he was; yet Jesus embraced his vocation into new life in the resurrection. His relationship with his disciples was made new. May we embrace Jesus’ ongoing calls into newness of life… even into the unknown

Prayer

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with all my heart,
In the presence of the angels I will sing your praise.
When I called, you answered me; you built up strength within me.
Your right hand saves me.
The Lord will complete what he has done for me;
Your kindness, O Lord, endures forever: forsake not the work of your hands.
