|The Descent of the Holy Spirit |
Upon Mary and the Apostles
I just want to be on fire for the Church, because sometimes I feel like I am too mediocre of a Catholic. I have this fantasy of being like them, spreading the Word in a most profound and everlasting fashion.
The other things I pray for, when I do this mystery of the Rosary, is the gift of tongues, not in a flashy way, but in a way that allows me to muddle through any confusion inherent with language, and come to understand what God is truly trying to tell me through another person. Likewise, I pray that I be given the ability to speak, such that I touch another person's heart and soul, and we understand one another beyond the verbal level.
Wouldn't you love to be infused with the Holy Spirit?
Happy Pentecost! Happy Birthday to our Church!
