Many things can divide communities: money, vanity, gossip. But the Spirit comes to save us from divisions. The Holy Spirit is the Master of harmony. He creates harmony in the community, because He Himself is harmony, the harmony between the Father and the Son.
To be Christian is not only to fulfill the Commandments, but "to be born again" and allow the Spirit to enter in us and carry us wherever He wants. This is the freedom of the Spirit. May the Lord help us always to be docile to the Spirit.
The Lord waits for us to offer him our failings so that he can help us experience his mercy.
Where does the Apostles' courage come from? It is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Boldness - courage - is a gift that the Lord gives on the day of Pentecost. The Christian mission is born from this gift of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus' resurrection shows us that death does not have the last world; life does. Christ has been raised, so it is possible to have a positive outlook on every event of our existence, even the most difficult ones and those charged with anguish and uncertainty.
Let us silence the cries of death, no more wars! Since we need bread, not guns. Let the abortion and killing of innocent lives end. May the hearts of those who have enough be open to filling the empty hands of those who do not have the bare necessities.
