The testimony of the Comforter
Jesus’ words to His disciples are not meant to be taken as a promise that the Comforter would testify to them, for they had already heard Jesus’ words out of His own mouth; rather, the Comforter was sent to them to testify through them to the world, as He also went on to say, “Ye also shall bear witness.” To whom? To the world. So let us pay strict heed to their apostolic words, the words of Sacred Scripture, the words of the Holy Gospel, for in them is the testimony not only of Jesus’ officially appointed eyewitnesses, but of the Holy Spirit Himself. This alone provides abiding comfort and salvation. Sermon for Exaudi.
