Gospel for the Monday of the 7th Week of Easter

John 16:29-33

Summary: Jesus tells the disciples that despite their imminent departure from him, he is not alone. He reassures them of his victory over the world's challenges, offering them peace.

Assurance of Peace

The disciples said to Jesus, “Now you are talking plainly, and not in any figure of speech. Now we realize that you know everything and that you do not need to have anyone question you. Because of this we believe that you came from God.”

Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now? Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived when each of you will be scattered to his own home and you will leave me alone. But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”
