John 14:27-31A

Jesus’ discourses in John’s gospel end on a hopeful note. Though his disciples remain troubled about what is ahead, Jesus consoles them by offering them peace, the peace that comes through his love of the Father poured out to them. All that he has told them and what he tells them now will help them understand his mission and theirs.

How many times in my life, on my journey of faith, have I hesitated to go? Each time I know it was you who gently nudged me, you who journeyed with me.
