"I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He
may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world
cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but
you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. I
will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." (Jn 14:16-18)
Pentecost is the fulfillment of this promise. Today is the
continuation of that same promise. The Holy Spirit has been given
to us as a reminder of God's presence with and in us. He is our
Helper each day to the extent that we ask for his help. St Paul
reminds us that as our Helper, the Holy Spirit intercedes for us
before the Father for God's will to be done in our lives. How
attentive are we to his presence in our lives? How often do we
ask for his intercession in our daily concerns? We are not
orphans. We are in God's hands!
