11 May Spirit of Truth (Jn 15:26) by Angi Castle
“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘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 (full readings)
Angi’s Reflections: The Advocate is the “Spirit of truth.” The world will not accept the truth until they know Christ. Our duty is to speak truth in a culture of darkness because we know Jesus. We know His love for us and the salvation that His love holds. We must stand up in defense of the unborn. We must advocate for those at the end of life. Let’s go out to teach and be an example of the “Spirit of truth.” Our love for Christ must shine brightly for the world to see the evil of abortion. We must shine the truth and joy of Life back into our world. It is our duty as brothers and sisters in Christ to speak truth by wearing our jerseys that say “REMEMBER The Unborn”, by praying at Planned Parenthood, and by reaching a hand out to a mother or father in need. The “Spirit of truth” lies in each us. Let’s courageously and lovingly share the truth, All In Christ for Pro-Life.
