Sorrow Will Turn into Joy

Sorrow Will Turn into Joy

Reflection on the Gospel of the Thursday
In The Sixth Week Of Easter

 

John 16: 16-20

Jesus in the familial conversation with His own, and prompts them of his coming death and resurrection, but in a little hidden way. He has told them many a things and has also called them Friends. He does not want to reveal everything that will happen to Him, but must tell His friends of his death and resurrection. This sounds a lot like the Trinity who visits Abraham and is departing to Sodom and Gomorrah, pauses and reveals to Abraham where they are heading and why. They tell him because Abraham is their friend. This again reminds of the Holy Spirit revealing to Simeon of the Baby Jesus in the Temple, because he was a friend. But the clergy of the Temple were not accorded the same dignity.

The disciples do not understand Jesus’ riddle of “in a little while you will not see me and in a little while you will see me.” Similarly, today we too have not fully understood Jesus’ teachings and sayings, therefore we lack in fully relishing and living the true Joy of his Resurrection. But we can make this wholly possible with the help of the Holy Spirit, the advocate, the counsellor, the guide and help. Jesus had promised us the Holy Spirit’s assistance on a 24×7 basis. He is with us today, He will help us understand how our suffering can be real joy when we are United with Christ.

Holy Spirit help us recognise and understand the hidden joy in our daily pain and difficulties we face.
