Today Jesus promises the Holy Spirit will come to guide us to all truth. In receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, there should be a difference between us and someone who has not. We may all look the same on the outside, but inside there should be a difference. It’s kind of like an egg. There is a difference in the way a hard boiled egg spins and a raw egg spins, even though they look the same on the outside. So it should be with us. The presence of the Holy Spirit should show up in the way we act.
I am a temple of the Holy Spirit. There are many implications to that truth. It means there should be a difference in how I treat others around me. Do I treat other people with an awareness of God within me and within them ?
We need to turn to the Holy Spirit for wisdom and to lean on the Spirit when we feel weak, discouraged or confused. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and will guide us to all truth. He will reveal his wisdom to you a little at a time and allow you to grow into holiness at just the right pace !
St. Joseph, pray for us !
