Homily 99 – Monday of the 7th Week of Easter

Peace Amidst the Troubles of the World

Perhaps our natural response to opposition and setbacks is to assume that we have done something wrong. In today’s gospel, Jesus says quite the opposite. Jesus tells us to expect trouble from the world when we follow after him. Indeed, we can even see trouble and opposition as a sign that we are fact doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing. Jesus promises us peace amidst the troubles of the world. He promises us the Holy Spirit to be our comforter and encourager. Let us strive to know the Holy Spirit better and trust in Jesus promise, “Have courage. I have overcome the world.”
