POWER PULSE – Preparation for the Great Feast of the Pentecost DAY SIX: HOLY SPIRIT – THE ONE WHO UNITES

REFLECT
One of the great tragedies that we encounter in our modern world is that of “division”

Communities “split”…

Societies get “divided”…

Hearts get “separated”…
… on the basis of caste, colour, creed, language etc

The evil spirit of “divisiveness” is rampant everywhere!

It is the Holy Spirit Who alone can unite us and help us to cast away this negative force.

St Paul speaks of “strive to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (Eph 4:3)

How does the Holy Spirit unite us?

He unites us to Christ and to be persons oriented to do the Will of God ( Eph 4:1ff)
He unites us to one another by helping to know each other as “members of the One Body” ( 1 Cor 12:13)

EXAMINE:
Can I seek the assistance of “Holy Spirit – The Unifier”…?
… to help me to be more united to the Will and Ways of the Lord
… to help me to accept other persons as “members of Christ’s body” and to go beyond peripheral dimensions of life, to live in peace and unity

PRAYER:
Holy Spirit, the One Who unites us to Christ and to all people, cast away the forces of evil that cause division in our lives.

Unite us…

with the Will of the Father, so that, like Jesus, we too may always work for the growth of the Kingdom and the glory of God
to see beyond aspects of “division” and instead to build relationships on commonalities and thus move from being “advocates of division” to be “agents of unity”

Unite us in Your love… bring us together to enjoy peace and harmony… join our hearts in loving fellowship, Amen!

Come Holy Spirit…Come into our hearts… and renew us, in your mighty love and fire!

May God Bless us!
