"When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning." (Jn 15:26-27) As we prepare to celebrate the Solemnity of Pentecost, the Church reminds us of the role of the Holy Spirit in the divine plan of God. The Spirit was sent by the Father to confirm who and what Jesus said and did. Because he is the Spirit of truth, we can accept his testimony as true. But the Holy Spirit proclaims the truth about Jesus, so that in the power of that same Holy Spirit, we may testify to the truth about the Jesus we have encountered as well. This is our mission. We are empowered to be living
witnesses of the living Lord.
