6th Week of Easter

Jesus had much that He wanted to tell the Twelve before the Crucifixion, but He didn’t want to overwhelm them. He saw his friends already grieving as they realized that Jesus would soon depart. Looking on the bright side, the Lord said that they would see Him again soon and, not only that, but receive the Holy Spirit to guide them. Testifying to Him would put their lives at risk, but the heavenly Father would give them whatever they needed. Like the Virgin Mary, we are blessed because we believe. When experiencing losses in our lives, what do we want to hold onto the most?
