The first disciples experienced the real presence of Jesus in the flesh. Through that presence, they felt the love and joy of following Jesus. They learned to trust God and that they could do hard things. When we consider that Jesus is still present with us today, it changes how we experience the sacrament of Holy Communion and gives us an understanding that we are never alone.

 

John 14:25-31

25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, 31 but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me.

“Come now; let us leave.
