Gospel: John 16:5–11
“He will prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment.” (cf. John 16:8)
Today, Jesus tells His disciples the things that the Spirit of Truth will do as He sends it to them – proving the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment.
People in not knowing the truth may believe that they are always right especially when they experience power and authority. And when they feel that they are being vindicated, they persecute. Persecution is evidence that the truth always finds its way out.
We may ask where God is in the current things that are happening. And these times when we think we are alone are also the times when we would feel most of the presence of the Spirit of Truth.
May we have the conviction that the Spirit of Truth is always here for us to be an advocate in our faithful and truthful endeavors.
