Jesus Promises The Holy Spirit

Jesus spoke to the Disciples about the Holy Spirit and the work He would do in the church at the Last Supper. He told them that He would be leaving them soon but would not leave them alone.

“ I will ask the Father and He will give you another Paraclete to be with you always, the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot accept since it neither sees Him nor recognizes Him, but you can recognize Him and will remain with you and will be within you. He will instruct you and remind you of all I have told you.”

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth because He reveals and teaches us the Truth about the Father. The Holy Spirit is the teacher who preserves the Church from error and keeps her close to the mind of Christ. The Holy Spirit bears witness to Christ and is the soul of the Church.
