My Gospel Reflections for May 21 Thursday: John 16:16-20

My Reflections:
When Jesus said to his disciples: “You will weep and mourn while the world rejoices; you will grieve but your grief will become joy.” Jesus was already alluding about his forthcoming passion that he has to go through and to his subsequent resurrection. He even compared it with a woman who is in labor pains but after she has given birth she will forget that painful experience altogether because of the great joy that the newly born child has given her.

Our walk with God will not always be a bed of roses, there will be trials, and sometimes we will be persecuted because of what we do for God.

In spite of these all let us continue to follow Jesus, for at the end there will be great rejoicing in store for those who are faithful to Him. …
