Let me open my reflection with a quotation from the Creighton On-line Ministries:
"In this sixth week of Easter we continue to let the joy of the Easter Season deepen in us. Perhaps we ask bigger questions. Perhaps we let the good news of the gift of new life enter into those places where we struggle.
We are listening to the story of the early community's recognition of the presence of the Holy Spirit with gentiles. And, we hear the rest of Jesus' last words to his disciples at his last supper with them. In the fifteenth chapter of John's gospel we read some of the deepest things Jesus says directly to us. We can hear him now, with the faith of the resurrection and gift of the Holy Spirit.
