The Love That Never Abandons Us (#626, Ascension & Mother’s Day)

Fr. Joel Homilies

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]

+333+ Motherhood: a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Ascension)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Jesus ascends so He can send us the Holy Spirit. We cannot see the Spirit but we see the effects of His work all around us. Just like the Holy Spirit, mothers work in the background for the success of others. In the same way, the Spirit wants us to be fully alive and prepares us for the coming of the Lord. Let us be grateful for mothers and for the Holy Spirit.
