"If you love me, you will obey my commandments. I will
ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, who will
stay with you for ever. He is the Spirit who reveals the truth
about God. The world cannot receive him, because it cannot see
him or know him. But you know him, because he remains with you
and is in you.
"When I go, you will not be left all alone; I will come back
to you. In a little while the world will see me no more, but
you will see me; and because I live, you also will live. When
that day comes, you will know that I am in my Father and that
you are in me, just as I am in you.
1 Corinthians 13:4-6
Truthfulness is not just 'telling the truth' it is also
about being 'true to ourselves' and sharing the truth about God.
The gospels have many instances where Jesus shows us the truth
about ourselves and the way we should behave toward each
other. The reading tells us about the Holy Spirit sent by God
to guide us and give us the strength to follow the way
that Jesus shows us through his teaching.
