GOSPEL READING: 

John 16:16-20

16 "A little while, and you will see me no more; again a little while, and you will see me." 17 Some of his disciples said to one another, "What is this that he says to us, `A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little while, and you will see me'; and, `because I go to the Father'?" 18 They said, "What does he mean by `a little while'? We do not know what he means." 19 Jesus knew that they wanted to ask him; so he said to them, "Is this what you are asking yourselves, what I meant by saying, `A little while, and you will not see me, and again a little while, and you will see me'? 20 Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.

 

The Application

 

The divine mysteries are always complicated to the human being, even if they are simple and holy. The joy and the sorrow are always together, paradoxically imposing their presence in our lives. Jesus’ leaving from this earth though painful to the disciples, in future they will understand the importance of the Holy Spirit.

How to understand these mysteries which are very much part of our life, carry in it, their own finality, that we are called to discern and choose? Once this discernment is done according to the divine will, filled with love and compassion, all our painful moments will be transformed later, in to joy and we ourselves will accept these painful moments as very useful and needful for today’s adventurous life. Shall we allow the holy spirit to accompany us in these difficult moment of life?
