    Reflections

    for Sunday, May 1, 2016

    The Gospel of John tells us today: I am going away and I will come back to you. As we consider and pray about the readings we have heard, we are invited to reflect on the presence and absence of Jesus in our lives and in the lives of the Church.

    The first reading today, from the Acts of the Apostles, begins to deal with the conflicts in the early Church. If Jesus had been present as He was before His death and resurrection, these conflicts could not have arisen. Instead, Jesus is now present to us and to His Church in a different way: through one another and through those who have a special role in His Church, the Apostles and their successors. Conflicts can be solved if we pray and speak together and seek the guidance of the Spirit.

    The second reading, from the Book of Revelation, continues the teaching about the foundations of the great City of God: faith, the Apostles and the Lamb of God. We can reflect on how different our world would be if everyone had faith. We can reflect on how different our own lives would be if we always had faith. We can reflect on the strength of our God who works through faith and spiritual structures.

    The Gospel bring us back to the statement of Jesus: I am going away and I will come back to you. Jesus wants us to know that His Spirit, the Advocate, will be with us and will teach us all things. The Spirit has a mission to us to teach us all things, to remind of the teachings of Jesus. We must daily invite the Holy Spirit to be present in our lives and to teach us and remind us. The Spirit is not teaching something new. Rather, the Spirit is teaching the same lessons that Jesus taught: love of God and love of neighbor; service to God and service to neighbor; love and service even of our enemies. The Spirit will invite us to suffer and die for our faith and remind us that Jesus gave His life for us.

    My sisters and brothers, each day we should be praying: Come, Holy Spirit! Kindle is us the fire of your love! Make us truly wise and give us the gifts that we need to live faithfully today. Amen.

     
    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: Acts 15.1-2, 22-29
    Second Reading: Revelation 21.10-14, 22-23
    Gospel: John 14.23-29

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
