The Advocate Teaches Us Everything


John 14:21-26


From the Navarre Bible commentary,

We know that Jesus wants us to show our

Love for God through “generous and faithful

Self-giving” and obeying the Commandments.


Jesus is our Advocate in Heaven.

The Spirit is our Advocate on Earth.

When we’re disheartened, the Spirit lifts us.

Spirit give us a preview of Heaven.


Saint Paul said that “each of us is a temple

Of the Holy Spirit.  The Trinity

Dwells in the soul of each person.”  Spirit

Helps us understand what Jesus Christ said.


Please let us remember Saint Pius V.

He was known for his strict fasting and prayer.
