Send your Holy Spirit

Reading
Jesus said, "I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you." (John 14. 25-26)

Reflection
In order to live the way of life we see in Jesus, we need help. We can't do it on our own. We can't manage in our own strength. Who can we help today by our prayers and example?

As the Church waits to celebrate the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost, let's remember that Jesus calls the Spirit 'helper'.

God knows we can't manage on our own. Of course we can't. After all, we are made for community with God and with each other. Jesus makes this possible by uniting our humanity with God in his own person. The Spirit, is the spirit of Jesus, helping us become like Jesus and uniting us to God. All we need to do is let go of the pride that puts self first and cuts us off from God, and in the end from everyone else as well.

Prayer
Overcoming God, make me new in the Spirit of Jesus so that I can truly become the person I am meant to be. And today may your Spirt help me help others, especially those who have drifted from your way, or who find it impossible to believe, or who are trapped by fear and guilt. Set me free, God. Set me free to be myself. Free to help others.
