Have any of you reflected on yesterdays feast? In the year 2009… this is something to truly ponder in meditation…What is God teaching us in this year that ends with the number 9?
Is it perhaps the gift of life?
I know many of you are suffering with the cross of infertility and the loss of a child, this is indeed a very heavy cross, no one can take this from you and no one can lighten the burden accept for the Holy Spirit. I believe these times are exceptionally heavy because of the lack of respect for the gift of the unborn child. Our country has lost its love for life…. but we who hope for life must turn to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. May He breath into your soul right now and bring you the peace that you need in this present moment! May he use the suffering that you are now enduring for His greater glory as He used St. John the Baptist may He enlighten you right now with the many gifts that you have.
As a wonderful Dominican priest once told me, “Breath Jesus in and breath Jesus out”, this is when we are lacking peace… stretch out your arms and let the Holy Spirit breath into you now. Reflect on the scripture below and let Our Lord know just how much you love Him, most especially in these trying times.
Yes, it was the feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, but it was also in memory of the feast of the Visitation…. Do you recall the scripture in the book of Luke? Let us use this scripture as a time of reflection and let the Holy Spirit bring you rest….
