6th Sunday in Easter Year A
When someone tells you that you better get a lawyer, it is not a good sign. It means some aspect of your life is coming under scrutiny. This is what Jesus said today in the Gospel when He tells us that He is sending us an advocate. Why do we need one? Because as a Christian our lives are always under scrutiny. Jesus did not make us to blend in to fit in with the culture. We are meant to be a beacon for the culture. We are not to belong to the culture but to Christ. This is a very challenging aspect of Christianity, that we stand out.
