“And when he had said this
(‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.’),
he breathed on them and said to them,
‘Receive the Holy Spirit.”
Remain with these words of Jesus as long as they are fruitful.
How do they touch you?
Allow that sense of Jesus’ presence to remain within you throughout your day.
Heritage word—“Frequent awareness of the power of the Spirit
renews our awareness of the reality and presence of Jesus in our lives;
raises our consciousness of His spiritual gifts within us;
moves us to place our weaknesses, temptations or negative drives
under the authority of the Holy Spirit.”
(Sister Joan Marie, 9th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
