Chapter Talks

‘Come Holy Spirit, kindle in us the fire of your love.’  Let us ponder: Is it not the fire of love that alone brings true and lasting change?

A Pentecost Homily

Chapter Talks

My sisters and brother as we celebrate our Sunday Eucharist on this Solemnity of Pentecost let us acknowledge, and give thanks for the presence of God’s Holy Spirit, here and now: in our very midst, within and among us. For what our readings today are conveying to us are not merely three discrete instances of the presence and action of the Spirit of God in the history of the early Church, although they do indeed arise out of specific experiences of the Spirit forming the nascent Church, for its mission of universal incarnation of the Life of God.

Our liturgy is rich. We are blessed indeed. Jesus breathes on us and says, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and who sins you retain are retained." The love of God has been poured into our hearts through this Spirit of God dwelling within us. We burst with ALLELUIA!

Receive the Holy Spirt

Chapter Talks

Jesus returns: he breathes the Spirit upon and within us.  The Spirit was already given but now it is given through Christ in an incarnate manner where we know he is ‘flesh of our flesh’.  We ‘know’ in our experience that ‘we move and live and have our being’ in, through and with Christ, the complete manifestation of God.  In the book of Ezekiel we hear God say: “I shall give you a new heart, and put a new spirit in you; I shall remove the heart of stone from your bodies and give you a heart of flesh instead.  I shall put my spirit in you, and make you keep my laws and sincerely respect my observances” (36:25-27).
