A Spirit of Power

Today, we’re celebrating Pentecost – the birth of the Church and the powerful movement of the Holy Spirit. 🕊️

Today, we’re celebrating Pentecost – the birth of the Church and the powerful movement of the Holy Spirit. 🕊️

We’re diving into why Pentecost feels like celebrating everyone’s birthday at Mass. We’ll also explore the boldness of the apostles in Acts. This isn’t just a story – it’s real. The Holy Spirit has been with us for 2000 years, helping us live without fear and with grace. We’re here for a purpose, and the Holy Spirit reveals that.

Are you open to the Holy Spirit, or are you holding back? Everyone has a gift – are you living in that truth and praying for an increase in your gifts? We’re called to live our faith boldly through prayer, wisdom, courage, and holy boldness.

The Holy Spirit protects your faith – rely on Him in everything. When we bear fruit by the Holy Spirit, we find joy, peace, and contentment. Christ provides what we lack. On our own, we don’t have everything we need, but with the Holy Spirit, we do. It’s about recognizing and using what we’ve been given. Make the choice to live your faith fully.

Quotes mentioned in this episode 💬

“He pours light into our minds, arouses our desire and gives us strength… As the soul is the life of the body, so the Holy Spirit is the life of our souls.” – St. Peter Damian

“We can study the whole history of salvation, we can study the whole of Theology, but without the Spirit we cannot understand. It is the Spirit that makes us realize the truth or–in the words of Our Lord–it is the Spirit that makes us know the voice of Jesus.”
—Pope Francis
