Come Holy Spirit, Fill the hearts of your Faithful!
‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments’, and specifically the commandment to love one another (cf. 13.34). How have you experienced the link between love of God and love of those around you? To his followers Jesus promises ‘we will come and make our home with them’. Our God is not a distant God but one who lives in us. What has helped you to be aware of the closeness of God to you? Jesus is preparing his disciples for his imminent departure and for a future in which he would be with them in a different way. He would not ‘leave them orphans’ but send an ‘Advocate’ to ‘be with (them) for ever’. How have you experienced the presence of God with you in your life? Jesus seeks to reassure his followers in the face of his imminent death. Although he will be leaving them, he promises them the gift of the Spirit. How have you been aware of the gift of the Spirit of God in your life?
Universal Synod of the Church
Following the engagement by so many people across the Diocese, the diocesan synthesis has been completed and will now be submitted to the National Steering Committee. The synthesis can be viewed on www.dioceseofmeath.ie from Wednesday 1st June. Thanks to all who took part in the synodal conversations during Lent and to all who completed questionnaires and made submissions. Thanks to all priests and facilitators who organised the synodal meetings in each deanery.
As we approach the Feast of Pentecost, let us ask the Holy Spirit: “Teach us the way we must go, and how we are to pursue it”.
