Holy Spirit, Pentecost -

Are You on Fire?

Yesterday we celebrated the great feast of Pentecost! Did tongues of fire descend upon you during yesterday's liturgy? Did you feel empowered by the Holy Spirit to boldly preach the Gospel?
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed thinking of the suffering the apostles and disciples endured as they preached the Gospel. I don't know that I could do it! But as I reflect on Pentecost and the descent of the Holy Spirit, I'm reminded that they had courage and power from the Holy Spirit. They weren't out there on their own suffering and preaching - they had the third person of the Trinity within them! It's a good reminder for me that I'm not doing "this" on my own - I have received the Holy Spirit who gives me many gifts and fruits to help me proclaim the Gospel with my life.
Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth,
everywhere present and filling all things,
Treasury of Blessings and Giver of Life,
come and dwell within us, cleanse us of all stain,
and save our souls O gracious One!
