We're all in this together.
We're in it together journeying through these days waiting and praying, these days of the novena to the Holy Spirit.
Remember the 9@9 prayer to the Holy Spirit tonight at 9
This is us journeying together into the 'new norm' - in the power of the Holy Spirit who is for us a helper and a guide.
If you get a chance, have a look at the Acts reading - today's 1st reading.
Paul laid hands on disciples of John the Baptist and baptised them, and the Holy Spirit came down on them.
This is the same baptism we have received.
Today's another day in our baptismal life in Christ.
Remember, it’s good to say often, 'I am baptised'. What it does is it brings our baptism out of the past into the present, into today.
The Holy Spirit came down on us also at baptism. In Confirmation, we were sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.
We have been given that gift - God's gift. Thank God we've been given it.
Each night in this novena, saying, praying Come, Holy Spirit, each of us is asking the Holy Spirit this - help me to be conscious of your power, help me to be aware of your presence, come and work through me, through my words, through my prayers, through my actions.
Have a safe and happy Monday
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord,
