Your joy is a blessed assurance

Acts 18:9-18; Psalm 47; John 16:20-23


In the first reading Jesus Christ assured Paul in a vision that those in Corinth who speak against him will never be able to silence or hurt him. With this in mind, Paul preached more intently. In the gospel, Christ assured his followers that their sorrow at his departure is momentary, sooner they will rejoice. Life is a compartment of opposites; but Christ turns our sorrow into joy by giving us eternal perspective that enables us to endure suffering for the sake of His Kingdom. Your joy is a blessed assurance, Jesus never fails.

Let us pray

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heartI embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
