As I listened to the readings at mass this morning, i wondered what it must have sounded like…..that roaring wind…..I can bring to mind the sound of winds during storms, yet I'm quite sure this wind was deafening. What must that have been like??? And how incredible it would have been to SEE tongues of fire over every head…..and then for everyone to understand each other, irregardless of nationality, ethnicity, language. It had to be amazing, unbelievable….a miracle.
The Holy Spirit works within each one of us…..it is the movement within us. From the Spirit we are given wisdom, fortitude, counsel, knowledge, understanding, piety, fear of the Lord. What have we done with those gifts? It's never too late to open those gifts and use them. We will never use them up….the Spirit will always provide more of whatever is depleting us.
And so, let us begin this new day with renewed faith and follow the gentle nudging we often feel within.
I wish you peace
