"Lord, send the power of your Holy Spirit upon us that we may remain faithful and do your will in our daily lives ….." (Mass Prayer in the Season of Easter)

We can do nothing without the inspiration and power of the Holy Spirit.

I am favored by constant inspiration from my Precious Friend. I commit myself to acting as soon as I get the inspiration. O Holy Spirit, grant me the gift of discernment of spirits so that no open door will be left for the inspiration of the enemy. Amen.

I am alive forever

"I am the beginning and end of all things. I have met death, but I am alive, and I shall live for eternity." (Revelation 1: 17-18)

I was dead but I am alive forevermore.

I conquered death by dying. You conquer fear by facing fears.

They conquered the enemy through:

  • The blood of the lamb
  • Their word of testimony
  • By facing death

(Revelation 12:10)

Eucharist – Source of Sanctifying Grace

"Lord, may these gifts cleanse us from sin and make our hearts live with your gift of grace …."

The Eucharist increases the life in God in us. We call this life sanctifying grace. It also cleanses us from venial sins and enables us to live in grace.

Be Courageous

"I have told you all this so that you may find peace in me. In the world you will have hardship, but be courageous: I have conquered the world." (John 16: 33)

It gives me peace and comfort to know that Jesus knows everything that is happening in my life. Where has he told me all that will happen in my life? In the scriptures. The scriptures reproduce faithfully the profile of the disciple.

Be courageous in your witnessing. Be courageous in living the 7-Way Plan.

The Power that makes the difference

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1: 8)

What type of people were the disciples of Jesus before Pentecost? They were people with weak faith, timid and unsure of themselves and their calling. Although they had been with Jesus for three years and had seen all His miracles and heard His great teaching. That was not enough to make them solid and trustworthy disciples.

What type of people were the disciples after Pentecost? They were full of faith, courage and enthusiasm for their calling. After Pentecost, they were so full of zeal for their calling that they were prepared to lay down their lives for Jesus.

What made the difference in the lives of the disciples before and after Pentecost? The gift of the Holy Spirit made all the difference.
