EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF GOD

Come, Holy Spirit

The Spirit of God fills the earth and encompasses everything and knows every sound and every word.” (Wisdom 1,7)

 

Come, oh Holy Spirit, to flood us with your light.

Come, O Father of the orphans, fountain of consolation.

Faithful guest of souls, and rest in toil.

Come wipe away our tears and mitigate the pain.

Fill our hearts with the joy of your peace. All the Man is emptiness if You are absent from him.

Come, oh Holy Spirit, come and quench our thirst.

 Heal the sick heart, fill us with your fullness.

(Lyrics of song C-55 “Come, oh Holy Spirit”)

 

Dear friend, we enter a Mystery, without trying to understand it well.

As Jesus told Nicodemus, the Holy Spirit is like the wind, no one knows where it comes from or where it goes.

Only, in pure faith, and open to its creative action, will you be able to perceive its prodigious effects… Something… that… you know that you have not achieved it on your own, that you have only put your abilities at the service of its action.

However, this not only happens in you and me; It has always happened and will continue to do so. The Holy Spirit makes everything take shape in a secret project, generated within the Holy Trinity.

The fact that Mary and Joseph were obedient in fulfilling Caesar’s edict, in going to register in Bethlehem thus, fulfilling the prophecy that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. By obeying the Law of Moses and presenting the child Jesus, eight days after birth, in the temple, the Holy Spirit moved Simeon to prophesize about the child… And so many other wonders such as these.

Paul tells us in the Letter to the Romans, chapter 8:

“We know that to this day all of creation is groaning and in labor pains. And not only that; we, who possess the first fruits of the Spirit, deep inside we groan, awaiting filial adoption, the redemption of our body…. In the same way, the Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness, since we do not know how to ask, as we should however, the Spirit himself intercedes for us with ineffable groans. And He who scrutinize the hearts, knows what the desire of the Spirit is, and that his intercession for the saints is according to God.

 

What could we say about this very hopeful prognosis? Just prostrate ourselves silently, before this eternal destiny projected and directed in an ineffable way, with a song of praise.

I propose to you to elevate to the powerful and provident God, this hymn of praise, with some verses from Psalm 33 (32)

Praise the Lord with strength and joy.

Give thanks to the Lord, to the sound of the zither; play for Him with the ten-stringed harp.

 For the word of the Lord is right and all his works are founded on the Truth.

Everything has been made by Him. By His Word the heavens and everything created were made.

God’s plan endures eternally.

Happy are the people whose God is the Lord, whom He chose as an inheritance.

He formed the heart of each man and scrutinize his actions.

The king does not win because of his great army, nor the hero because of his great vigor.

The eyes of the Lord are on those who seek him; in those who wait for his favor, to keep his soul from death and to revive and sustain his life in tribulation.

Our soul hopes in the Lord and our heart rejoices.
