Jn 16: 12-15

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Things we still do not know

I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.”

I often struggle to accept this sentiment-not only from God, but those around me. I want to know everything in its entirety immediately and directly from the source. I presume I am ready to listen, to understand, and to act. And yet, this is often not the case, which leaves me feeling vulnerable and fearful of the unknown. What I need to be more mindful of is that I need more time in the presence of the Holy Spirit and those around me. I need to trust the guidance of the Holy Spirit to provide the necessary fruits for me to be able to understand and accept. It is not about knowing, but co-laboring with Jesus and the Paschal Mystery. So with humility, faithful to God’s guidance and providence, I simply desire to be with God and those loved ones around me. I seek to labor in solidarity together in pursuit of the truth the Holy Spirit provides to “bear” with whatever is to come with grace and hope. Amen.

Prayer

This mystery is not only the source of all creation, but . . .
This mystery is lovingly and intimately involved in what happens on planet Earth, and . . .
This mystery actively wants humankind to be in right relationship with it, so that we might evolve into the fullness of our destiny.
When the pilgrim is ready the guide appears.
