Hope: Today Jesus speaks to us concerning truth: ‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.’ What are we to make of this? All we can hope is that we may be found worthy by Christ to be able to bear the truth that the Spirit will bring. and not be either too immature for it, or too bound in error to accept it.
Gracious Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Saviour. Amen.
– Archbishop William Laud, d. 1645
