Sixth Sunday of Easter

 

From the Word of the Day

 

Whoever loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”

 (John 14: 21)    

 

How should we live this Wordjcheart

Love pervades the entire life of humans.  If we are loved, we do not close in on ourselves. Rather, we open up to others, especially to God, then to creatures nearest us, and then to all others.  At the same time, love leads us to make efforts to reciprocate the good received.  In regard to God, we accept the commandments and acknowledge God as Father.  In regard to others, we respect justice and life and seek concord and peace.

Every act of love deeply marks the existence of every person and proclaims God’s presence in human history.  Thus, the ‘new heavens and new earth’ come to fulfillment.

All this is possible with the help of the Holy Spirit who is always with us, guiding us to truth.  He transforms us interiorly and gives us strength to change our life and history.  In a word, the Spirit makes us enter into communion with God and brings us closer to our sisters and brothers.

Today as I pause for silent contemplation, I will bask in the warmth of God’s love for me and ask Him to fill me with love for Him and for every person.

Lord, send Your Spirit to renew the earth and make us daughters and sons of God in the depths of our heart. 

The voice of St. Bernard’s Prayer to the Holy Spirit 

O Sweet and Gentle Spirit, direct my will more and more toward Yours so that I may clearly know it, ardently love it, and efficaciously do it.  Amen
