I still have many things to say to you (John 16 12-15)

  • Jesus said, "I have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now." He knows that the Apostles won't fully understand Him now, and so in today's reading we are preparing for the descending of the Truth who will teach the Apostles. The image is similar to young parents who have been waiting for their young child about to arrive. At that moment the only communication is baby talk, even though we are bursting with joy to share with them everything that we want to tell them. Jesus also has that same feeling for us, his children. Father Matthew also has so much that he wants to share with us regarding the spreading the Gospel to others. It takes time, and there are bumps along the journey, and people may wonder why we are doing this, but we need to support one another if we are to experience the goodness that God has in store for us. The Alpha program is a support system to bring forward an encounter with Jesus Christ.
