You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn to joy


La tristeza y el gozo

Gospel text (John 16,16-20): Jesus said to his disciples, «A little while and you will see me no more; and then a little while, and you will see me». Some of the disciples wondered, «What does he mean by: ‘A little while and you will not see me, and then a little while and you will see me’? And why did He say: ‘I go to the Father’?». And they said to one another, «What does he mean by ‘a little while’? We don't understand». Jesus knew that they wanted to question him; so He said to them, «You are puzzled because I told you that in a little while you will see me no more, and then a little while later you will see me. Truly, I say to you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn to joy».
