Come Holy Spirit!!!

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on May 27, 2012

Come Lord Jesus, send US YOUR SPIRIT!

Evening Prayer II: The Ascension of the Lord : READING: 1 Peter 3: 18, 21-22 (emphasis added)

The REASON why Christ died for sins once and for all, the Just Man for the sake of the unjust, was that He might lead us to God.

He was put to death insofar as fleshly existence goes, but was given life in the realm of the Spirit. 

You are now saved by a baptismal bath which corresponds to this EXACTLY.  The baptism is no removal of physical stain, but the PLEDGE to God of an IRREPROACHABLE CONSCIENCE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

He went to heaven and is at God’s right hand, with angelic rulers and powers subject to Him.

The Word of the Lord… Thanks be to God!

Brothers and Sisters in Christ!  YOU who have prayed in earnest the Novena (9 days) to the Holy Spirit are NOW TRANSFORMED…

Does not Peter – the fisherman whom Christ gave the keys of heaven and made him head of His Holy Church (cf Mt 16: 17-19) – tell us so in the above passage?

You are now saved by a baptismal bath which corresponds to this EXACTLY.  The baptism is no removal of physical stain, but the PLEDGE to God of an IRREPROACHABLE CONSCIENCE through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

By Christ’s death and resurrection and ascension into heaven, we RECEIVE His GIFT – the Holy Spirit!  The Holy Spirit does not dwell in someone who is “dead”… but in someone who is ALIVE…  Someone who is TRANSFORMED…

Morning Prayer: Thursday: Seventh Week of Easter: READING : Romans 8: 10-11 (emphasis added)

If Christ is in you, the body is DEAD because of SIN, while the Spirit LIVES because of JUSTICE.  If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead DWELLS IN YOU, then He who raised Jesus from the dead WILL BRING your MORTAL BODIES TO LIFE also, through His Spirit DWELLING IN YOU.

The Word of the Lord… Thanks be to God!

And as YOU have RECEIVED the GIFTS of the Holy Spirit AND the Fruits of the Holy Spirit

May Christ dwell in your hearts through FAITH…

Evening Prayer: Wednesday: Week III: READING: Ephesians 3: 17-21 (emphasis added)

May Christ DWELL in your HEARTS through FAITH, and may CHARITY be the ROOT and FOUNDATION of YOUR LIFE. 

Thus you will be able to GRASP FULLY, with all the holy ones, the breadth and length and height and depth of CHRIST’S LOVE, and EXPERIENCE this LOVE which SURPASSES all KNOWLEDGE, so that YOU may ATTAIN to the FULLNESS OF CHRIST.

To Him whose power now at work IN US can DO immeasurably more than we ask OR imagine – to Him BE GLORY in the Church and in Christ Jesus through ALL GENERATIONS, world without end. AMEN!

The Word of the Lord… Thanks be to God!

(See how much more complete YOUR experience with Sacred Scripture is when praying daily with the Christian Prayer?)

All these with one accord devoted themselves to prayer…

For just like the Apostles in former times, as they gathered with the disciples and women of their group to pray…

All these with one accord devoted themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and with His brethren. ~Acts 1:14

So to have YOU done with many around the world, in one accord YOU have PRAYED and ASKED the Holy Spirit to come upon YOU.  So has He done, thus…

Evening Prayer: Thursday: Week III: READING: 1 Peter 3:8-12 (emphasis added)

All of YOU should be LIKE-MINDED, sympathetic, LOVING towards ONE ANOTHER, kindly disposed, and humble.

DO NOT return evil for evil or insult for insult. RETURN A BLESSING instead.  This YOU have BEEN CALLED to do, that YOU may RECEIVE a BLESSING as YOUR INHERITANCE.

“He who cares for life and wants to see prosperous days MUST keep his tongue from evil and his lips from uttering deceit.  He MUST turn from evil and DO GOOD, seek peace and follow after it…

For the Lord has eyes for the JUST and ears FOR THEIR CRY; BUT against EVIL DOERS the LORD SETS HIS FACE.” (Ps 34:12-16)

The Word of the Lord… Thanks be to God!

Which side will YOU be on?

All these with one accord devoted themselves to prayer…

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.  And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind; and it filled the house where they were sitting.  And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, parted and rested on each one of them.  And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit… ~Acts 2: 1-4a

THE LAST HOUR…
