“But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go.” (JN 16: 7)
We know how difficult it is to lose somebody. We, who have lost parent/parents (or spouses), miss them so much. Our Lord knows it perfectly, and He wanted to protect us from this. God is One in Trinity. I see that one more reason for “it is better for you” is in meeting another Person from the Holy Trinity. Jesus showed us the Father, and now we can have a relationship with the Holy Spirit.
“I will send to you the Spirit of truth, says the Lord; he will guide you to all truth.” (Gospel Acclamation)
