The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come'.

Let everyone who listens answer, 'Come'. Then let all who are thirsty come: all who want it may have the water of life, and have it free. Rev. 22:17

The Spirit and the Bride

May 26, 2018

The role of the Holy Spirit in the Church is summarized in a few words by the author of the Apocalypse: "The Spirit and the bride say," Come! "There is only one voice, that of the Holy Spirit who expresses himself through the whole Church, to claim the coming of Christ. This voice must find its echo in each one of us: Let the one who hears say: "Come!" Let the thirsty man come near; let the man of desire receive the water of life, free of charge.

The cry of the bride is therefore pushed by the Holy Spirit. He who is the love of Christ moving towards his Church is also the love of the Church turning to Christ and calling his coming. He is the one who forms to the Church her heart of spouse. And in making him call the Bridegroom with all the strength of his affection, he provides himself satisfaction to this call, and he realizes the coming of Christ, a coming which is constantly spreading in the world. If he puts more and more ardor to launch the cry: "Come!", by the heart of men, it is in order to grant him more and more widely. The Spirit of love presents to the Church his spouse who comes, he quenches thirsty man and gives him freely the water of life, his own divine life and his inexhaustible love.

PRAYER NETWORK

May 20, 2018

Become part of a community committed to praying with the Church for the Conversion and for the Unity of Families.

 

"PRAYER NETWORK † Spirit & Life" is an active apostolate of listening and intercessory prayer.

 

We pray for current perspectives of the Church, for the intentions of the Pope.

 

We pray for the Conversion and for the Unity of Families.

Jesus said to his disciples, "When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test.” And he said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, 'Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him, ‘and he says in reply from within, 'Do not bother me; the door has already been locked and my children and I are already in bed. I cannot get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence. "And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the holy Spirit to those who ask him?”

Luke 11

Receive the Holy Spirit

THE OUTPOURING OF THE SPIRIT (John: 19: 30-35)

When Jesus had taken the wine, he said, "It is finished." And bowing his head, he handed over the spirit. Now since it was preparation day, in order that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for the sabbath day of that week was a solemn one, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs be broken and they be taken down. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and then of the other one who was crucified with Jesus. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs, but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out. An eyewitness has testified, and his testimony is true; he knows  that he is speaking the truth, so that you also may (come to) believe. 

 

CHARISMS FOR THE CHURCH  (1 Corinthians 12: 1; 4: 11; 27-31)

Now in regard to spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware.

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit; to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to another discernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes. 

Now you are Christ's body, and individually parts of it. Some people God has designated in the church to be, first, apostles;  second, prophets; third, teachers; then, mighty deeds; then, gifts of healing, assistance, administration, and varieties of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work mighty deeds? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way.

Eucharistic adoration

May 20, 2018

The permanent Eucharistic presence is an invitation to prayer. Much more than images or statues, it attracts the contemplative gaze, while images or statues evoke the absent person.  The Blessed Sacrament is the sign of the real presence of Christ.

 

On the part of Christ, this presence signifies the most extreme gift he has given of himself, a gift by which he has become permanently at the disposal of those who would like to receive him. Those who are sensitive to the revelation of divine love are particularly happy with this presence and wish to adore it.

 

Eucharistic adoration is the most concrete form of the worship of God; the gaze on the Most Holy Eucharist is very close to the divine presence.

 

The Eucharistic presence intends to give to those who recognize it the divine wealth, more precisely the abundance of the gifts of the Holy Spirit that Christ wants to spread in humanity: light, strength, love, peace and joy. All that the Christ of the Gospel wants to bring for a transformation of human existence, he gives it profusely by the Eucharist.

 

 

To adore you

 

When we adore You, make us realize that it is a mission.


We adore You Jesus, in the name of Your Church, on behalf of all men and women. 

We adore You for those who do not have the time nor the desire, and for those who would like to pray to You more often but do not. 

 

We adore You, united to all those who adore Thee: with them we want to fulfill the destiny of our human heart which is made to belong to You. 

We adore You, knowing that we have received this grace for others, and that as privileged, we must share with humanity.

We present You with a fervent homage all of creation, offering our voice to all nature that adores You in silence. 

Fountains of Living Water

May 20, 2018

On the last day and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood there and cried out:

'If any man is thirsty, let him come to me!

Let the man come and drink who believes in me!'

As scripture says: From his breast shall flow fountains of living water.

He was speaking of the Spirit which those who believed in him were to receive; for there was no Spirit as yet because Jesus had not yet been glorified. 

 

John 7:38

Jesus promised not a trickle of water but rivers of living water; he brings forth grace and spreads it in us with abundance.

These brimming rivers of life carry the Church in her great mission of proclaiming the Gospel to the whole universe. They also penetrate in us to transform all our being, communicating to us the impetus and the energy of divine being.

They can at any time change our fatigue into fresh activity, our sadness into joy, our concerns into bold confidence.

We would like to lose nothing of these rivers of living water; we would like to always open up our hearts so that we can be filled with an overflowing life.


Come and let's contemplate the open side of Jesus Christ. The heart of Jesus is open to infinity; it will never be able to close for us; it flows in abundance, and at every moment it comes out living water of grace.

From the open side springs the blood of sacrifice, the one that Jesus gives us in his Eucharist to make us intoxicate the soul. From this open side come the gifts of the Holy Spirit to enrich our being with an overflowing life.
