In this time of fear and uncertainty we are called to a deeper faith and trust in Jesus Christ.  We are in post-Ascension and pre-Pentecost time.  The Church is waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit.  Today we hear Jesus at prayer:  it is His final prayer.  He prays for himself and His followers. He wants His presence, His hands and His feet in the world today.  He hopes that His followers will be united in sharing the Good News with the world.  ‘The hour has come’ He is now very aware of His passion, His death and His resurrection.
