Mass Readings: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/061619.cfm
This weekend’s Gospel reading is an echo of the Feast of Pentecost. The Lord again, describes to his disciples to each of us now that the Holy Spirit will be among us while he leaves for the heavenly kingdom. Once again, we are reminded that the Holy Spirit will become the voice of God the Father. We are also able to reflect on this powerful mystery of the Blessed Trinity.
I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming.John 16:12-13
If we are to believe that we are living vessels of Christ, each time we receive the Eucharist, then so must we also understand how the Holy Spirit helps us reach out and spread His Word. Just as the Spirit of truth will only speak what he hears from the Father and the Son, we should also attempt to listen what the Spirit is telling us, so that we may be able to communicate better as Christians to one another.
Since the love of God has been poured out into my heart through the Holy Spirit, what can I do to share that love with others? How can I challenge myself to be more selfless and generous?
