Friends of the Rosary:
Last Sunday we reflected upon the miracle of descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. The fire of God transformed those disciples who were locked out of fear to the Jewish, into brave and joyful people. They realized that becoming ambassadors of Christ was a fulfillment of life. The Holy Spirit would entirely transform them.
Decades later, St. Paul, the thirteen apostle of Jesus would describe in a letter to the Galatians (Gal 5:16-25), the need to live by the Spirit, and not by the passions and desires of the flesh.
What Paul wrote twenty centuries ago is applied today — and probably more than ever since the sign of time is the attack against the truths of the Holy Spirit.
Paul stated then: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.”
In contrast, the works of darkness are immorality, pride, idolatry, division, hopelessness, and a variety of sins.
Let’s live in Spirit, let’s also follow the Spirit, as St. Paul said.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
