Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
May 31, 2020 – Sunday
Gospel: John 20:19-23
Receive the Holy Spirit.
Today is Pentecost Sunday. The Holy Spirit which Jesus promised to his disciples has finally come. It descended and filled everyone with a strong power and zeal for the Gospel.
Let us warmly and joyfully receive the fire of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Welcome it with curiosity and conviction so that we may also preach the Good News with strength and power to those who need it. Especially in this time that many people are lost, suffering and down, may the Holy Spirit be their stronghold in this battle of virus and lockdown.
Mother Mary, direct our steps to the Holy Spirit in our daily endeavors to be our guide, teacher, and counselor.
