Holy spirit

  • Pentecost Sunday, Year B

    Theme: Come Holy Spirit fire of Love

    Pentecost rounds out and climaxes the Easter event. All that we have celebrated, that is, Jesus’ saving death, his resurrection and ascension to glory took place so that the Holy Spirit could be unleashed upon the world. Pentecost calls us to the realization that the center of all reality; the innermost heart of all infinity, the love of the all-holy God has become the center of our heart.

  • Sixth Sunday of Easter Year B

    Theme:  Holy Spirit source of mutual love

    As the early groups of Christian disciples grew and developed, they had to learn to cope with the ordinary frictions which were an inevitable aspect of inter-personal relationships. People of diverse character and background had to learn to relate to one another in mutual charity in order for Christianity to succeed. All members had to enter into the symbiosis which we call community. The Oxford English Dictionary defines symbiosis as ‘a mutual interactive relationship between two living things, usually to the advantage of both’. Today we are invited to a symbiosis which supports and sustains the Christian community. Even though before God we remain as helpless as birds in the nest, with mouths open wide to receive food, we are assured that God will never forget us.

  • Trinity Sunday Year B

    Theme:  Unity of God is our model

    What is the meaning of the Trinity? This word originates from the Latin word ‘trini’ meaning ‘threefold’. The term was first used by Tertullian to denote the central doctrine of the Christian religion that in Jesus dwells the Father and the Holy Spirit not withstanding the order of terms. In each Person dwells the other two Persons of One God. This truth is supported by St. Paul when he teaches that “in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell bodily” Colossians 1:19;2:9. Each of these Persons is truly the same God and has all His infinite perfections; yet He is fully distinct of the other Persons. The one and only God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, all eternally begotten. Holy Trinity Sunday celebrates God who utterly transcendent has chosen to be God who is completely with and for us. All the same we must keep in mind that this definition is constituted for us but is not created by us because He is a mystery of faith.
