Come Holy Spirit!

Acts 2: 1-11/ 1 Cor 12: 3B-7, 12-13 / Jn 20: 19-23 

To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. As a missionary disciple, it is important that you contemplate these words from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. Explore what gifts (benefits) are unique to you because of the Holy Spirit, and discern how God is asking you to use those gifts in love of God and others. This is stewardship! You can discover your particular gifts through prayer, spiritual reading, and programs that may be available in your parish, but don’t ignore the gifts or assume you don’t have any! As Paul goes on to say, we are all members of one body, and each one of us has special purpose! Allow the Holy Spirit to drive your discipleship – today and always!
