Dearest Eucharistic Family,
Saint Peter Julian presents us with a question in the above excerpt about how we are to live, and words to pray with to find life in His Spirit. Living in Liturgy is a blessed life to live. The Mass, the highest form of prayer, receiving the Eucharist, the Incarnation of God in our lives; a miraculous blessing and gift. Jesus comes to us in Holy Communion, then we are SENT from every Sacred Liturgy, sent on Mission by the grace of the Holy Spirit with us, never alone.
Being docile to the Holy Spirit sets us in union with receiving Christ, a gift from Our Father; this brings us to a Trinitarian way of living.
What kind of life?
A life filled with the wholeness of God in docility to His Spirit is a privileged existence.
Being docile is being ready to accept, control, instruction, and submission. By grace, we are prepared for everything.
Listening in silence equips us to be ready to live in the Spirit.
So many times, there are misunderstandings. Someone may think you are ignoring them if you do not immediately respond to a message or phone call when you have yet to receive it. So many times, people will think they know what you are thinking, and they are way off base. So many times, we hear conversations that are not living the Gospel in the outside world.
These are all opportunities to go into the silence and remember the blessings, remember the Scriptures, and remember we have been sent to be docile to the Holy Spirit and respond to the misunderstandings of life in LOVE.
In grace, we are to represent Christ. React cheerfully to misunderstandings, that we have been busy and have yet to receive a message. Respond by clarifying your thoughts and professing a humble message of Christ's love to those who do not know his WORDS of Gospel life.
We are blessed in the mystery of love. In our wombs, we carry God's life, a miraculous life to live.
What kind of life should be live?
A life of love that our reception of Communion and docility to the Holy Spirit has readied.
Living in the Liturgy is a blessed life to life.
The Holy Spirit has guided our Church in forming a pattern of prayer through the heart of our mother, Mary. We have gone once again through the Lenten and Easter Season to Pentecost and are now sent into ordinary time. The Mission of our lives within the grace of the Holy Spirit is a concern for souls. Like Mary, we love God's children. She is the mother of our Church, feast celebrated the day after Pentecost, soon after we remembered, The Visitation. The GIFTS of the Holy Spirit are to be shared in a spirit of concern for those we meet.
The blessings of Wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord we carry with us stir in our hearts the love we need to grow in and give away as it has been given to us in Christ.
Jesus went to the Father so we may have the gift of LIFE in a spirit of God's love. In submission to the Holy Spirit, we are to give away the love we have been given, handing over our will to the will of God every moment, ready, in attentiveness to the GRACE and MISSION of the Holy Spirit.
Mary, our mother, Our Lady, Our Mother of the Blessed Sacrament, prompted by the Holy Spirit, said YES. She lives the fullness of God's love by choosing the forgiveness of sins and enfolding all into her Immaculate Heart.
In docility let us,
