Blessed Are the MeekJohn 16:5-11
The readings continue with Jesus speaking of His leaving, and the coming of the Holy Spirit. This theme is echoed throughout the reaings leading up to Ascension and Pentecost. It is comforting to see how kind and gentle Jesus is in preparing us for His departure. May we imitate His kindness and gentleness in our dealings with those closest to us.
Jesus, have mercy on us.
