life and in the life of the parish?
Following the Ascension of Our
Lord, tradition says that the disciples
gathered in the upper room together with
Our Blessed Mother for the
novena, nine days of prayer in anticipation of the outpouring of the
Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit was given to the disciples to empower them
to “be my witnesses…even to the ends of the earth.” (Acts1:8)
As disciples of Jesus, we too can join together in prayer for a fresh
outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our parish, our faith communities, our
families, and in ourselves. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to be
effective witnesses of love of God for our world.
