Today, our parish continues her meditation on the Risen life, in expectation of the coming of the Holy Spirit, who is love. As the Body of Christ, we join every member of the Universal Church in waiting to be consecrated in Truth.
We hear Jesus the night before he died say: “Father keep them in your love.” We are indeed his people. He prays for us now, today in our world, he remembers us as his body as his people. The psalmist says “all my being bless his holy name.”
We encounter the Risen Christ here in King of Prussia when we experience the gathering of the one body of Christ. When we come together on Sundays to worship God, he dwells with us and in our homes.
Our unity with each other leads us to communion with Christ.
In this context, the Holy Spirit consecrates us in Truth. Truth is not an individual reality. It does not center on my needs or me. Truth comes only from God. John reveals the Truth that sets us free: “If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.”
The Easter Season ends next Sunday on Pentecost. In these last days seek the silence of God in waiting. Come to understand that only Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Experience the joy of Spirit’s presence among us, adore God in your heart, encounter him in confession, discover him in your invitation to others to join us here in the heart of our family life. Remember, God is always here, waiting for you.
