Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.

Gospel: John 15:26–16:4a
“I have said these things to you to keep you from stumbling.” (cf. John 16:1)
Obstacles may be present in our journey of faith yet Jesus assures us today of the presence of Spirit of Truth in our faithful endeavors to help us not stumble.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus warns His disciples of the persecution they would experience in doing His ministry. With this warning, He assured them that the Spirit of Truth will be with them to testify about Him and help them in doing so.
In living and expressing the truth of our faith, we Christians were expected to experience criticisms and persecutions from the people who try to evade and distort it. Let us be assured that the Spirit of Truth is always with us to help and guide us in those times when we think that they are getting the better of us.
