And on the day of Pentecost this prediction is fulfilled with total accuracy. Therefore, will not “convincing concerning sin” also have to mean revealing suffering? Through the “departure” of the Son, the Holy Spirit came and continues to come as Counselor and Spirit of truth.

Jesus of Nazareth too comes to the Jordan to receive the baptism of repentance. In the depth of the mystery of the Cross, love is at work, that love which brings man back again to share in the life that is in God himself.

The words of the enticement, that is to say the temptation, as formulated in the sacred text, are an inducement to transgress this prohibition-that is to say, to go beyond that “limit”: The missions of the Son and the Spirit are intimately co-related; the Spirit’s role is precisely to make the Son more fully known in the world.


Man is challenged to become the adversary of God! The Church perseveres in preserves, like the Apostles together with Mary, the Mother of Christ, and with those who in Jerusalem were the first seed of the Christian community and who awaited in prayer the coming of the Holy Spirit.

The Church feels herself called to this mission of proclaiming the Spirit, while together with the human family she approaches the end of the second Millennium after Christ.

Jesus Christ did not come into the world to judge it and condemn it but to save it. Furthermore, despite many noble efforts for peace, new wars have broken out and are taking place, wars which destroy the lives or the health of hundreds of thousands of people.

For the Conciliar texts, thanks to their teaching on the Church in herself and the Church in the world, move us to penetrate ever deeper into the Trinitarian mystery of God himself, through the Gospels, the Fathers and the liturgy: Beginning from this initial witness at Pentecost and for all future time the action of the Spirit of truth who “convinces the world concerning the sin” of the rejection of Christ is linked inseparably with the witness to be borne to the Paschal Mystery: The most complete sacramental expression of the ‘departure’ of Christ through the mystery of the Cross and Resurrection is the Eucharist.

So he cannot be “convinced” of it except by the Holy Spirit: And yet it occurs by the power of the Holy Spirit, who makes it possible for Christ, who has gone away, to come now and for ever in a new way.
