THEME: The Spirit of truth will lead you to the complete truth.

BY: Fr. Diotacious Chikontwe SMA

HOMILY FOR WEDNESDAY MAY 25 2022

 

*READINGS OF THE DAY*
Acts 17:15,22-18:1
Psalm 148:1-2,11-14
John 16:12-15

*FROM OUR FIRST READING*
In the first reading, Paul addresses the people of Athens as seekers after truth. He declares that God wanted all nations to seek the deity and by feeling their way towards him to succeed in finding him. Moreover, he says that God, who wants all people to seek and find him, has drawn close to them because it is in him that we live and move and have our being. Paul is able to announce to the people of Athens that the God whom they have been seeking has been fully revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, who is God’s beloved Son.

*FROM THE GOSPEL READING*
In the gospel reading this morning, Jesus tells his disciples that when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will lead them to the complete truth. The complete truth is always beyond us and it is the Holy Spirit who will lead us there. We are all seekers after truth, the truth about ourselves, the truth about other people, the truth about our world, the truth about God.

*CONCLUSION*
In the gospel reading this morning, Jesus tells his disciples that when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will lead them to the complete truth. The complete truth is always beyond us and it is the Holy Spirit who will lead us there. We are all seekers after truth, the truth about ourselves, the truth about other people, the truth about our world, the truth about God. The Lord continues to speak to us throughout our lives through the Spirit of Truth, opening up for us, little by little, what he calls in the gospel reading, the ‘complete truth’. What is needed from us is a listening ear and a listening heart.

*LET US PRAY*
Lord, you have searched me and you do know me. You know that I seek your truth, but that I am weak. Please continue to bless me with your healing and forgiveness. Help me to trust in your mercy, you love, and your Resurrection power. Through Christ our Lird. Amen!
