Monday, August 31st - Gospel Reflection
FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
Monday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time
August 31, 2020
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.
God is always ready to give us His Spirit. It doesn’t matter who we are. It doesn’t matter how high or low educated we are.
People from Nazareth's hearts were not open to Jesus and the Spirit. They had
their expectations and they had their knowledge.
The key to abundant life is to have an open heart...to be ready for unexpected
things. God is creating amazing things all the time. We must not be too busy to see
God’s Spirit wants to touch us with ever fresh faith, hope and love. He wants
to guide us to new ‘places’ and new ‘moments’. He wants us to experience beauty
I wish us to feel God’s love that we’re surrounded by. I wish us to take it to
someone who lives close by...make a phone call without any particular reason just to hear their voice, say something nice to a tired cashier at the store, give an unusual
tip to an overwhelmed waitress, take your spouse for a long walk. There’re so many
ways to express love and care. We must see each other.
I wish us to be open for God’s Spirit. I wish us to spread goodness around our life. I wish us to be transformed by the Spirit.
Have a blessed week,
