As Disciples of Jesus we have received his Spirit. He helps us to use well the four ways that the Bishop mentioned in his Pastoral Letter of last Fall on the pastoral priority.
a) Reading the Gospel: The Spirit helps me to understand the word of Christ, to go beyond a superficial perception. He enables me to better grasp the attitudes of Christ and his teaching.
b) Prayer: The Holy Spirit places me before God like a child before his Father, ‘abba’!
c) The Sacraments: The Spirit communicates the life of Jesus to me in the sacraments. He transforms me more and more through the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist. He makes my Baptism and Confirmation more effective in my everyday life, especially through the gifts of the Spirit. In the epiclesis of the Eucharistic Prayer, the Holy Spirit is invoked through the transformation of assembly.
d) The Church: The Spirit makes me live in the Church, in union with my Christian brothers and sisters, in the conscience of my own responsibility, in a missionary concern, in the certainty that he is acting in a manner hidden in the heart of every human person.
e) Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V/ Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
R/ And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray: O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolation. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
