PENTECOST SUNDAY

From the Word of the Daydb_43-Pentecost[1]

 “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me, and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.”  (John 15: 26-27)

 “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth.  He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming.  He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.  Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.   (John 16: 12-15)

How should we live this Word

 Pentecost is here!  It is the time of the Church!  It is the time of witnessing, guided by the Spirit who continues to teach us about Jesus and lead us to the whole truth.  The Spirit helps us to say ‘Jesus’ in our life situations, in our problems that are both different and the same as that of the first disciples.  The Spirit helps us to find the Truth in our hearts and make it become whole in us and for us in all our life events. Now is our time as believers!

How consoling it is to hear repeated to us that we are not alone in our daily life; the Consoler is with us, making all things possible and helping us to carry our burdens.  In all this, the Spirit of Truth glorifies Jesus and the Father, because all belongs to the Spirit and we do too.

In my pause for silent contemplation, I will invite the Holy Spirit deeper into my being to be my constant guide and help.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and light in us the fire of Your Love!  Come Holy Spirit; come through Mary, our Powerful Helper!

The Voice of Pope Francis

It is the Spirit Paraclete, the Consoler who gives us the courage to traverse the streets of the world bringing the Gospel!  The Holy Spirit makes us see horizons and urges us toward the peripheries of the world to proclaim the life of Jesus Christ.  Let us ask ourselves if we tend to close in on ourselves, in our group, or if we allow the Holy Spirit to open us to the mission.
