Easter Continues ....



Jesus had longed for this day.  When he spoke to the Apostles at the Last Supper, he spoke of them being in the world, and how he would send them his Spirit, the Paraclete, to do within them what they could not do alone.  To believe in the coming of the Spirit is one of his most emphatic messages.  Yet, an undercurrent to the recognition that they are "in the world" is the quiet statement, made in prayer to the Father, "I am coming to you."  Coming to the Father has been the great driving force of Jesus' life.  That is where he is at home, that is where he belongs.  He left the Father and all that heaven means so as to draw us out of our darkness and into his light, but how hard it must have been....


They were a feeble little band, but there was no more Jesus could do.  He leaves them because they have all they need, and the Spirit will bring it to mind.  But they themselves must do it.  How God must long to do it for us, and make sure it is done!  But that is never his way.  We are independent moral beings, and if we use the abundance of grace that flows down upon us, we can become like Jesus is - a true child of God, some one who can echo these words: I am coming to you.








 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
