This Week’s Gospel Message

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

This Week’s Gospel Message for Sunday, June 9th is from John 14:15-16, 23b-26.

“Jesus said to his disciples . . . ‘I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always. . .The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.’”

“Jesus promises ‘another Advocate to be with you always.’ Is there any doubt that God will never leave us? God is with us. And we are with God.”
