May 5 Monday Gospel Reflections on John 16:29-33
Today's reading is a beautiful fusion with the Gospel. St. Paul "entered the synagogue, and for three months debated boldly with persuasive arguments about the Kingdom of God."
The Gospel on the other hand says, " Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived
when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone."
St. Paul proceeds with the prophesy of Jesus as he continued to stay in the synagogue and preached the Good News with fervor.
The gospel and the reading challenges us to hold fast to our faith and what we believe in the Gospel. There are millions and one ways that will tempt us to leave God alone but this is just a challenge. We have to be conscious with what we say and do always.
