Exaudi, the Sixth Sunday after Easter
Jesus' discourse in today's Gospel provides a good opportunity to defend our confession that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son. The Son and the Spirit are as bound together in substance and in purpose as are the Father and the Son. The Spirit testifies of Jesus, through the preaching of the Gospel, and this is what creates and sustains faith. The sermon.
