“Today’s world needs women and men
who are filled with the Holy Spirit.”
Last Sunday we celebrated the Feast of Pentecost. This feast is the second greatest feast of the liturgical year after Easter. On Pentecost we recall the coming of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and disciples following the Lord’s ascension and the beginning of the Church.
Pentecost is also a reminder of our Confirmation when each of us came to full membership in the faith. The Holy Spirit came to strengthen within us the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and awe and wonder of the Lord. These gifts support us as we navigate life doing the Lord’s will.
The Spirit lives in us and is our guide. This week pay special attention to the Spirit leading and guiding you as you navigate the week and recognize His presence. We are all filled with the Holy Spirit – don’t let the Spirit’s guidance go to waste!
