Pentecost – God’s Spirit fills us with love, shapes us in His image, and restores us to Communion with one other. Ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray for others in the Spirit. The gift of the Spirit grows to the degree that we give it away.
Ascension – Jesus returns to the spiritual realm where he came from. He is present to us through the Spirit that dwells in our hearts. May the eyes of your heart be enlightened so you can live your daily life from Jesus’ eternal perspective.
Easter, 5th Sunday – I got my first wild turkey thanks to Lee’s mentoring. The Holy Spirit mentors and guides us, gives us mentors, and calls us to mentor others. Let us allow the Holy Spirit to build us up in the faith so that we can build up others.
The Holy Spirit is always working in the background to make the Kingdom happen in our lives. The Spirit is also working through us to bring the Kingdom to others. Each Christian has special gifts, called Charisms, for the work of the Church. [AUDIO]
We must be persistent in our prayer just like Abraham was persistent. What about when we don’t get what we want? Our Father wants something even better. We don’t realize that the best thing God can give us is the gift of Himself. [AUDIO]
The Holy Spirit makes every Christian a Christ. God saves the world through us when we cooperate with the Holy Spirit. But there is an enemy spirit that tries to distract and discourage us. Keep out the bad spirit; stir up the Holy Spirit! [AUDIO]
Feat. Deacon Michael: We must send an invitation and remove the barriers from our hearts. St. Philip Neri invited the Holy Spirit into his heart. Are we going to have open doors, open hearts, to the Holy Spirit? [AUDIO]
The Holy Spirit “mothers” every Christian and gives us direct access to the throne of God. Listen to the Spirit and cooperate with his work. “Can a mother forget her infant? Even should she forget, I will never forget you.” [AUDIO]
Christ brings us the Good News and asks us to join His mission. Christians must be Christ-like, especially on snow-bound busses and at the sides of caskets. None of us can be Christ on your own; ask the Holy Spirit to help you. You are sent! [AUDIO]
The Spirit restores Communication and Community by overcoming language barriers and forgiving sin. The Spirit gives little nudges to move us out of the grasping and isolation of consumerism into the receiving and giving of true relationship. (24 May 2015)
