Today's reading—John 16

The Word of Christ here is ASK: "Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full" (v. 24). It's such an audacious invitation, traditionally there's a Sunday in the Church Year (the 6th Sunday of Easter) that bears its name: Rogate, "Ask" Sunday. And it follows on the heels of yesterday's word of joy: Jesus desires that our joy be filled up, and the path to that filling is asking!
