I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

Reflection for May 4, Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter; John 16:12-15

Gospel: John 16:12-15
Jesus said to his disciples: “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”

There’s a story of a prayerful wife who would always make the first move to reconcile with her husband whenever they had problems. In their twenty five years of marriage it was always her who initiates the reconciliation. And she was always successful with her peace initiative towards her husband.

Who impels her to reconcile? It’s the Holy Spirit, it guides her; it speaks to her mind and it tells her to be humble enough to make the first move to reconcile. Why does she listen? She discerns and pays attention to the voice of the Holy Spirit because she is prayerful.

God the Holy Spirit is our guide, our advocate that has been with us since our Baptism. Its presence within us was further strengthened during our Confirmation. But not all of us are aware of its presence in our life.

 Not all of us are aware that it's always there ready and willing to guide us. Why? Because we are not prayerful!  Our prayerful life lays the groundwork for us to discern the presence of the Holy Spirit within us.

Are you always prayerful? Are you aware of the Sacred presence of the Holy Spirit in your life? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
