Jesus equips and empowers us all by giving us the Holy Spirit-
“Receive the Holy Spirit.” (Jn 20:22b).
But, as Catholics, are we living our lives empowered by the Spirit? Do we still experience the vibrant presence of God? Unless we experience a renewed infilling of the Spirit in our lives and subsequently, a renewed outpouring of the Spirit through the work of the whole Church, there will be a lack of evangelization throughout, to the ends of the earth. We must experience a modern Pentecost in which the Holy Spirit energizes us so that we can make a bold outreach.
To carry on the work of the New Evangelization we need to know that we are commissioned, that we ought to respond accordingly, and that we are equipped and empowered in the Holy Spirit. We are also to be baptized in the Spirit, and to understand and use our charismatic gifts.
Are we ready to surrender to God’s direction? Let us respond to Him, as we continue to pray,
“Send forth your spirit …and you renew the face of the earth.” (Ps 104:30).
