Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for May 23, 2021.
Description: The scripture readings for Pentecost Sunday in the Catholic Church remind us that the Holy Spirit is Christ’s Spirit generously given to us so that we can be holy and to continue the ministry that Christ began. On our own, we cannot be like Jesus, but if his Spirit is alive and active within us, we have Christ’s holiness, his faith, his supernatural love and peace, confidence and endurance, and everything else that we see in Jesus.
You received the Holy Spirit during your baptism. The reality of this was confirmed and strengthened in the Sacrament of Confirmation. Ever since the first out-pouring of the Spirit on Pentecost, God has been transforming the world by working through those who serve his Kingdom. He generously fills us with his Spirit so that we will succeed at whatever he asks us to do. But how well his holiness and power exudes from us is up to us.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for Pentecost Sunday, Confirmation classes, adult education, faith sharing groups, Charismatic prayer meetings, RCIA Mystagogy class, etc.
