Pastoral Notes 24th May 2015

The action of the Holy Spirit is mysterious, but not magical. What is called for, on our part is openness, willingness and effort. Fear, selfishness, laziness, apathy – all these lead to stagnation. What the Holy Spirit did for the apostles was to imbue them with courage and boldness so that they were able to overcome their fear and timidity. They became people with a mission and living witnesses for Christ. Today is the birthday of the Church. So Happy Birthday one and all. Now if we have not done so already, let us ask the Lord and Life Giver to enlighten our minds so as to Live Jesus in our thoughts, purify our hearts so as the will of God manifest in our actions and strengthen our wills so that we may give effective witness to our Christian faith in proclaiming the Gospel of love.
SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD FALL AFRESH ON US.
