Coming of the Advocate

John 16:12-15

The Advocate, the Spirit who will come to them soon after Jesus leaves, will speak the truth to the disciples’ hearts and through inspired writers and preachers. Jesus spoke the truth to the disciples in the flesh. He will no longer be with them in the flesh. He will be with them in the Spirit, speaking the truth through the Spirit.

Prayer: I thank you, Holy Spirit, for coming to me through sacred Scripture and the sacraments.
