St. Bede the Venerable,
Pray for us
John 16:12-15

 

The Spirit of truth, according to Jesus, is responsible for guiding the community to all truth. This means that the Spirit works through the members of the community. Being open to the guidance of the Spirit implies that we are seeking what is good for the whole community. Our cultural individualism can thwart the work of the Spirit because it fosters the good of one over the good of the whole.
