No one lives a life without troubles. Even when we feel successful, we can look back at times in which we may have been beset with difficulties. It is just part of the human condition. As much as we would always like everything to go perfectly, that is not the reality in which we live. In today’s Gospel, Jesus encourages his disciples as he prepares to depart from them. The Teacher, who gave them purpose and meaning, would no
longer be with them day by day. But what we have come to understand is that the Teacher – the risen Lord – truly is with us.
