WEEKLY THOUGHTS PENTECOST SUNDAY MAY 19th 2024.


              Dear friends, we celebrate Pentecost Sunday this weekend this is 50 days after the Resurrection of Jesus. Jesus had promised to send to the disciples the Holy Spirit as advocate, teacher and reminder of the teaching of Jesus.

The role of the Holy Spirit in the Christian life is basically to make us dwellings or temples of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit strengthens us to fight against temptations and sanctifies us through the Sacraments. In Baptism, we become children of God and co heirs of heaven. In Confirmation, we become temples of God and defenders of the faith.

In Reconciliation, we are forgiven our sins. In the Eucharist, we are spiritually nourished and transform bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. 

Ordination provides ministers to serve the Church and Body of Christ.

Through Matrimony, couples live together in love to form a domestic Church.

May the Spirit fill our lives with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and self-control the gifts of the Spirit. (Gal 5: 22-23)

Have a great week and God bless.
