“ . . . theology is not enough, formulas are not enough to explain the Unity and Trinity of God . . . It is a personal communication which God alone can give, and the task of giving it belongs to the Holy Spirit, who is the same love which unites the Father and the Son.
The Holy Spirit is the fulness and the joy of God.
It is so difficult to speak of these things. We have to babble like children, but at least, like children, we can say over and over again, tirelessly, ‘Spirit of God, reveal yourself to me, your child.’”
Carlo Carretto, A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants, 193.
Read: Acts 1:1-14
Without Jesus for the first time, his community of biological and spiritual family gathered in a room together for focused prayer, waiting for Jesus to send the Spirit. Whoever we are with, whether church or nuclear family, let’s pray like we desperately need the Spirit to energize and move us out of the room. Because we do.
“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
