The promise of another Paraclete, one just like Christ, who will be with us forever, assures us that we have not beenÂ abandonedÂ by Christ's going to the Father. On the contrary, the Spirit Â reveals the intimacy of Father and Son that Christ has opened up to us. All this is essential for our ownÂ sharingÂ in the 'greater works' that He has planned that we should do.
