In John’s Gospel, Jesus tells his Disciples, “If you love me, obey me; and I will ask the Father and He will give you another Advocate to be with you always.”
He is the Holy Spirit, the Spirit who leads into all truth. He will not abandon us or leave us as orphans in the storm; He will come to us.

The Holy Spirit brings us God’s peace.
I share with you one of my daily prayers . . .

O, Holy Spirit, beloved of
my soul . . . I adore you.
Enlighten me; Guide me.
Strengthen me; Console me.
Tell me what I should do . . .
Give me your orders.

I promise to submit myself
to all that you desire of me
and to accept all that you
permit to happen to me.

Let me only know your will.
