things which are to come. He will take what is mine and make it known to you; in doing this, he will glorify me. All that the
Father has is mine; for this reason, I told you that the Spirit will take what is mine, and make it known to you.
In today’s gospel, we have a glimpse into the Trinitarian
mode of living. The Spirit offers nothing new: He would only
take what is Christ’s and make it intelligible to us. And, what
does Christ have? Nothing other than what the Father
has. This is what the Trinitarian life is: An unending procession
of total and absolute giving. The Father gives everything he
has and is to the Son; the Son gives everything he has and is
(which comes from the Father) to the Spirit. And, the Spirit
pours forth what he has and is into us. So, what should we do?
We are invited to continue this Trinitarian procession: Pass on
what we have received from God via Spirit to our sisters and
brothers, holding nothing back. In such giving, we glorify God
and we become like Him, the ultimate ‘Project Human’ God
has dreamed for us.
