Jn 16: 12-15

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Basic Good News!

Ever felt overwhelmed when you’ve tried to learn something?
Good teachers know that learning is a gradual process.
And a good teacher will only teach what the students are ready to understand.
Teachers start with the basics.
And with time, helps them build on the lessons they learned before.

Jesus knew that.
As a good teacher, he knew that his apostles
couldn’t learn everything about the Truth all at once.
His Truth was too complex a thing
to expect anyone, even his disciples, to understand all in one sitting.

Like the good teacher he is,
Jesus is never going to overwhelm us with the Truth.
With time and experience and prayer,
more of the Truth will be made known to us by the Holy Spirit.

Just as St. Ignatius Loyola begins his Spiritual Exercises
with something called the “The First Principle and Foundation,”
so, too, does Jesus start with the basics with us.
Good News indeed!
