“I will send you the Spirit of Truth,” says the Lord; “He will guide you into all the truth.”
– cf. John 16:7,13
It is the Holy Spirit who makes fully understood the truth revealed by Christ. When we gladly receive the Holy Spirit, He will guide us unto all truth ;He will give us light to enable us to discover the depth and richness of everything we have read and heard about Jesus.
“And so the Holy Spirit did teach them and remind them: He taught them what Christ had not said because they could not take it in, and He reminded them of what the Lord had taught and which, either because of the obscurity of the things or because of the dullness of their minds, they had not been able to retain” – Theophylact
Our Lord “completed and perfected Revelation and confirmed it…finally by sending the Spirit of Truth” – Vatican II “Dei Verbum”, 4.
“Christ has not left His followers without guidance in the task of understanding and living the Gospel. Before returning to His Father, He promised to send His Holy Spirit to the Church: ‘But the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all I have said to you’ [Jn 14:26].” – Saint Pope John Paul II
Come Holy Spirit, fill my heart
and kindle in me the fire of Your love.
O Lord God, grant that by the Holy Spirit
I may be truly wise
and forever enjoy His counseling and His consolations.
I ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
