Feast of St Paul VI, Pope.

"The Holy Spirit will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you." (John 14: 26).

Friday 29th May 2020, 7th Week in the Easter Season is the feast of the gentle Pope St Paul VI, (1897 - 1978), Pontiff. Paul's papacy spanned the period of Vatican Council II which was followed by a period of change and ferment in the Church and society. In the midst of this, he authored a prophetic encyclical where he warned bluntly what would follow if the world go the way of contraception and abortion.
His prophecy has been vindicated to the letter.

The Magisterium of the Church draws from the prophecy of Jesus in our lead Scripture for today: "The Holy Spirit will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you." The Holy Spirit taught the Fathers and Doctors of Church throughout the ages. His degrees are true and reliable.

Without memories of the good things God is doing in our lives, we will never be able to give thanks to God and love God. God brought the Chosen People out of Egypt through mighty deeds. He led them in the desert, provided for them and protected them against fierce enemies. They forget and therefore never gave thanks.

Have you had the experience of the Holy Spirit reminding you of something important God did for you? I have several times. It helps me to give thanks to God for which I might have missed.

Ask the Holy Spirit to bless you  with His ministry of remembering.
