Gospel: Jn 3:1-8
"No one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of the water and the Spirit"
In the Gospel today, Jesus tells Nicodemus how vital the Holy Spirit is for us to gain eternal life in Heaven. While the First Reading illustrated that because the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, they were able to begin to proclaim God's message with boldness.
How about us? Do we let the Holy Spirit make us proclaim God's message with boldness?
This just helps us understand that we need the Holy Spirit now, and always. In the same way that we can enter the Kingdom of God now in the present time.
Mother Mary, continue to pray for us so we'll continue seeking for the Holy Spirit -- so we can start living our eternal life here on earth now.
