Short Reflection on Today's Gospel (John 16:29-33)
Jesus spoke clearly about the tragedy of betrayal and the victory of the cross. Jesus knew the hearts of his disciples more than they knew. He knew they would abandon him in his hour of trial. Such knowledge could have effortlessly led to bitterness and rejection. Jesus met the hurt of betrayal and disloyalty by supreme love and trust in his disciples. He loved his disciples to the very end even when they left him alone to die on the cross. He knew that the cross would not bring overcome but victory over sin and death. Jesus says the same word to us today.  "My love for you is unconditional and I will never desert you." While we cannot avoid all pain and anguish in this life, Jesus, nonetheless promises us that he will guide us safely through any complexity or trial we may have to undergo for his sake. Jesus calls each one of us to take courage, because he has overcome the world. The Holy Spirit gives us a living hope in the power of the resurrection and a positive trust in God's abiding presence. Nothing can overcome this faith and hope in Christ's victory – no trial, pain, temptation, or testing. The Holy Spirit gives us the strength and courage we need to defeat adversity and to persevere in faith.
