Let Us Share the Holy Spirit and the Fruit of His Love

As a Church and community we have commemorated, celebrated and confessed that Jesus Christ died, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and now, because He doesn’t want us to be alone, fulfilled his promise and sent the Holy Spirit upon us. The Holy Spirit came to us as the Church of God to strengthen, to protect, and to make us holy while exercising the fruits of His love.
It is Pentecost -- fifty days after the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus went up to sit at the right hand of God the Father, but He never abandoned us. He went to the throne of heaven to show us the way and to lead us into His glory; where Jesus, the Head of the Church has gone, His body, the Church, will follow. During our time as pilgrims in this world we need His presence until the end of time through His gift of the Holy Spirit.
Now we have to ask ourselves what am I doing with this gift in my life?
How is the Holy Spirit transforming my whole existence and making me at this time a real disciple of the Gospel? The strength we receive from the Holy Spirit and all His seven gifts (wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord) are for us as we work as laborers in God's Kingdom.
During this time of the pandemic we have a real challenge; what is God asking me to do at this time? How can I be a worker in building his Church and Kingdom under these specific circumstances? We need to be united in prayer, to help and support each other, to share words of encouragement and hope to every brother and sister, and we need to be generous to those who are struggling to provide for their needs.
At this time of the pandemic, we are being called to show mercy and
solidarity, to witness the presence of the Holy Spirit and share His fruit of
Love. The Spirit of God is love and being carriers of the Holy Spirit is being carriers of God's Love.
May the Lord bless you and may the Blessed Mother, the help of Christians, protect you.
Fr. Javier
