Pentecost Sunday is the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit to each of us. The promise Jesus gave that we would not be left orphaned or alone by God. What a blessed gift! The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and brings us the love God has poured into our hearts. With the gift of the Holy Spirit, we are called to live and walk in the Spirit of God - to grow in His love and share that love with everyone we meet.
Our scripture readings today stress our unity in the Holy Spirit. Do we care about others? Do we seek to see the Holy Spirit in all those we encounter daily? How about with our families and friends?
It is easy to be concerned with ourselves and our own needs are usually at the front of our thoughts. The image given in the second reading this Pentecost reveals to us that we really need to be concerned with each other. We all make up the body of Christ and in order for the body to flourish we depend on the holiness of each and every part.
Today, take the time to recognize the Holy Spirit in your life. Pray for the courage to allow the Spirit to move in and through your life and draw you closer to the Lord. We pray for God to enliven the Holy Spirit in each of us so that the Body of Christ is strengthened.
May God Bless us.
