The Spirit will bring from the Father new insight into the meaning of Jesus' person, ministry, and teaching. Through the Church we have access to the action of the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit--our defender and our advocate--is still at work today bringing the life and death of Jesus into full effectiveness.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all God, all involved in our salvation, all protecting us. God’s generosity knows no bounds.
Because we are Jesus’ disciples, we too face rejection and persecution. But if we suffer for proclaiming what Jesus taught we won't be alone.
My life is not about me--it is about us. And the more generously I give myself to others, the more like Christ I become.
The way to the Father calls for us to live out the life of Jesus that we share as His disciples. Our path to heaven lies in and through our sharing of that life.
We stay connected with the vine through participation in Jesus’ sacraments, through frequent and attentive prayer, through reflection on God’s word.
Jesus' promise of His peace is not the mere absence of conflict, but rather the assurance of salvation--the guarantee of fullness of life.
All blessing that might come to us comes from God. Seeking for it out of our own resources is an exercise in futility.
Jesus’ words and works are the Father’s words and works. Jesus is leading His followers into the deepest truths about God.
