P
BAPTISM OF THE LORD

PENTECOST SUNDAY

The readings suggested for today develop and drive home the impact of the Pentecost event on "those who belong to Christ" by describing the function and the fruit of the Spirit in Christian life. Jesus discloses the work of the Spirit, in John, in his farewell discourse from which today's Gospel is excerpted. Two of John's five sayings about the Spirit as Paraclete (Advocate) are found here: first, the Spirit bears witness to Jesus and, second, the Spirit leads the disciples to the truth he takes from Jesus. As the Catechism puts it, the Spirit's is a "joint mission" with Jesus (n. 689). The truth that the Spirit teaches is not a course of study but a way of life that finds concrete expression in "love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." This is the fruit of a life guided by the Spirit. What is interesting in this context is that this list of virtues does not originate with Paul. Such lists were stock in trade for the moral teachers of the day. But Paul realizes, as we must, that it is not our good deeds but God's grace that bears such fruit, to the glory of Jesus' name.
