Best of Barron
6th Week of Easter, Year I
Bishop Barron writes:
"Friends, the theme of today’s Gospel declares that when the Spirit comes, he will guide us into all truth. There is a story I’ve heard about Jean-Luc Marion.... A student asked a pointed question about God. Marion looked at her and said, 'Go to Sunday Mass for a year and then return and ask me that question again.'
"Marion’s response was not just a clever one-liner. If true knowledge of God depends upon immersion in the Holy Spirit, then that knowledge is a function of an entire form of life.
"[Understanding] the divine mystery flows from life in the Holy Spirit. And so today we pray, 'Come, Holy Spirit, come!'" For Bishop Barron's reflection in its entirety, click here: http://dailycatholicgospel.com/get-reflections.
