Gospel Good News                               

6th Sunday of Easter - Year A - John 14:15-21.

Jesus prepares his disciples for his death and resurrection.  He helps them, and us, understand that he will be with us always through the Holy Spirit (the Advocate).  The Spirit is the Spirit of Truth and “you know him, because he is with you, he is in you.”   We hear about the mystery of Christ within us, “I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.”  This mystery is the interwoven one-ness of God, Jesus and the Spirit, “anyone who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I shall love them and show myself to them.”  We reflect on Christ living within us.
