John 14:27-31a


Gift of Peace

 
[Jesus said to his disciples,] 27“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. 28You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe. 30I will no longer speak much with you, for the ruler of the world is coming. He has no power over me, 31but the world must know that I love the Father and that I do just as the Father has commanded me.”

 

Reflection

 


i am going away. Parting is such sweet sorrow, so the poet writes. The Lord seems to be giving his last instructions to his disciples before he leaves them. Jesus does not leave them insurances but assurances. He does not leave them property to divide among themselves but love to impart around. He does not leave them worries but hopes that life goes on indeed.


A friend was crying to me because his father died and he was not able to say his goodbye and ask his father’s blessing and forgiveness. The more he would listen to you now, I remember telling him. He would be kinder from heaven to watch over you and bless you. I myself would sometimes drop by the grave of my father to ask his blessings on any undertaking I would start. And I would feel him guiding me.


So much more will our Lord be with us and grant us peace as we get up and go.

 

One does not have to be rich and old
to write a last will and testament.
Write yours today.

John 14:21-26


The Advocate

 
[Jesus said to his disciples,] 21“Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me. And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.” 22Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him, “Master, [then] what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world?” 23Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. 24Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me.
25“I have told you this while I am with you. 26The Advocate, the holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name—he will teach you everything and remind you of all that [I] told you.”

 

Reflection

 


Master, what happened that you will reveal yourself to us and not to the world? The apostles’ questions to Jesus are always funny. They seem to be out of sync with the words of Jesus. Jesus is speaking of so deeply spiritual things, of love, and of his Father, and their questions are so worldly and so selfish.


In life, sometimes it is not about finding always the right answers. Sometimes there simply are no answers to all our questions. At times it is about asking the right questions.


I love this advice of Rainer Maria Rilke to a young poet: “Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer” (as translated by Stephen Mitchell).

 

Do ask any question whatsoever today.
