G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 09.03.12
‘The Spirit of the Lord has been given to me.’
Upon us, too, rests the Spirit of the Lord, for ‘they who are sons and daughters of God are led by the Spirit of God’.
We demonstrate this by docility to the Spirit’s inspirations.
But receiving the Spirit is meant to make us apostles also.
We too are sent—in our own time, place and circumstances of life—to preach the Good News to the poor (and there are many kinds of poverty), to proclaim new sight to the blind (and there are many ways of being blind), to set the downtrodden free (and the crushing burdens people carry are manifold).
And to do this in a way unique to each of us, as we do it by being our best selves.
Let us pray to be faithful to our two-fold calling—to be both children of God and apostles, ennobled and enabled by the Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:1-5. Lord, I love your commands. Ps 118(119):97-102. Luke 4:16-30.
