       Consider using My Parish App because of its excellent features.  My Parish App provides the Scriptural Reading of the day, the Parish Bulletin, Prayers, Homilies, News, Giving, Herald, Inspire Daily, Reflections, Daily Mass, Rosary, among other ways to strengthen and deepen our spirituality and our communication with one another.  I believe most of us are using our cellphone every day and almost all day.  So, it is not hard promoting the use of this App because we use our cellphone with this App and it makes our communication much easier and more convenient.  I encourage you to download it for your use to communicate with us and communicate with Jesus!
       The pandemic has put us in a situation where we don’t want to be burdened with fake information and we want to be guided well because we need to seek and know the Truth.  The concern in the media today and the recent past is the discussion whether it is safe to go back to work or not.  We see and hear how people would like to go back to work to provide for their families.  There are those who push that things will be okay; others talk about a new normal requiring the use of facemask or doing social distancing. What is sad and annoying though is how all these positions or ideas are communicated to us.  There are those who are very sure of themselves making announcements only to be proven wrong afterwards without the humility to accept their mistakes.  There are those who think they are the only ones who have the monopoly of truth and condemn others to be always wrong when in fact these other people are also making their best to answer individual needs and the requests of each and every community.  Amidst this pandemonium, where do we go?
        When we seem to be lost along the way, let us not forget to go back to our faith.  Jesus in the Gospel today gives us again these reassuring words: “And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth . . .” (Jn. 14:16-17).  The Gospel context is that Jesus was leaving but He was reassuring His followers that they will not be orphans.  He did not like His followers to feel they were abandoned like sheep without a shepherd.  Jesus was talking another Advocate who will come as a supporter and a defender, a guardian who intercedes and protects.  In human relationships, an advocate is a witness who takes the stand or a best friend who comforts and helps.  Jesus is the Advocate.  He was referring to “another” Advocate, that is, the Spirit of truth, who comes from the Father.  He comes to testify to the truth of who Jesus is, His works and His words.  And He will be there “always” because His presence is not determined by time and space.  And so, my dear friends, let us welcome and allow this Spirit of truth to guide us so we may follow the right path.  We need this Spirit of Truth of discern what information to rely on and our guide as we communicate with each other.
        Lest we forget, allowing this Spirit to truth to work in us and guide us requires that we have to go back to our relationship with Jesus, rooted in His reminder found at the outset of the Gospel: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (Jn. 14:15).  This is an important instruction. Jesus continues, “Whoever has my commandments and observes them is the one who loves me.  And whoever loves me will be loved by my Father and I will love him and reveal myself to him” (Jn. 14:21).  As followers of Jesus, let us not only expect Him to reveal Himself to us.  Let us try to reveal Him to the world and immortalize His life with His love: for they will know we are followers of Christ by our love.  Let us embody the love of Jesus and His commandments in our life.
