Gospel Reflection for May 26, 2013, Trinity Sunday

Jesus said to his disciples, “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.  When the Spirit of truth comes, this One will guide you along the way of all truth.”

John 16.12

Jesus recognizes he has more to say than his friends can hear or bear.  He cannot ready his friends fully for the future.  His disciples are going to have to live into the mystery of his death, resurrection, and return to God.

People who face blindness report learning to use the white walking cane is difficult until eyesight is finally gone.  As long as one can see, one continues to depend on the eyes.  Perhaps similarly, Jesus’ friends can discover his Spirit guiding them only as they face problems and conflicts in his absence.

How do you experience the Spirit guiding you in your present life?
