Gospel • John 15:26-27; 16:1-4
Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. John.
[Our Lord Jesus Christ promised that He would send the Holy Ghost.]
At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: When the Paraclete cometh, Whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, Who proceedeth from the Father, He shall give testimony of Me: and you shall give testimony because you are with Me from the beginning. These things I have spoken to you that you may not be scandalized.
They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doth a service to God. And these things will they do to you, because they have not known the Father, nor Me. But these things I have told you, that, when the hour shall come, you may remember that I told you of them.
