ACTS 16:11-15; PSALM 150; JOHN 15:26-16:4
In the Gospel, Jesus tells his followers that when the advocate comes they will be able to endure and testify on his behalf. Jesus asks us to testify on his behalf, to announce the good news. Pope Francis has reminded us of this in his Apostolic Exhortation “the Joy of the Gospel”. He tells us that “every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization.” Am I engaged in spreading the Good News, either by my words or by my actions? If not, is there some way in which I can do this? In the first reading, Paul went to Macedonia to preach the Gospel. His preaching was so powerful that people accepted Jesus as their Saviour.
LET US PRAY
Grant, O merciful God, that we may experience at all times the fruit produced by the paschal observances. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
