Pentecost: A Festival and My Special Anniversary
“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning. I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”
~ St. John 15:26-27.16:12-15
Five years ago today, I made my promises to the Lord with the Community, which I am so blessed to be a part of.
Today, I thank God for the outpouring of graces He gave me through the Holy Spirit, to do this. What a beautiful gift!
I didn’t deserve this gift, but God, in His loving kindness, generously rewarded me. As I began to lose members of my own family through illness and death, He gave me a new family, whose hearts were so full of love.
I will be forever grateful for His gift to me.
