Easter Continues ....



This week it is Philip who is travelling and delivering the message of the Good News of Jesus Christ, this time to the people of a Samaritan town.  He was joined by Peter and John who joined Philip in praying that they would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. In the Gospel Jesus is also talking about the Advocate - the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Truth - who the Father will send to those who love him and keep his Father will send to those who love him and keep his commandments.


When we think of the Sacraments, and when we remember the grace that comes with them, we can see how God is helping us to remain faithful.  The Holy Spirit, who we receive in the Sacrament of Confirmation, confers on us the gifts we need to be good Christians, to do God's will, to lead good lives.


Very soon, now seventeen young people in our Parish will receive the Holy Spirit themselves when they receive this Sacrament on 5th June.  For them, their families and the whole Parish, this is a momentous occasion.  It is a Sacrament that will strengthen them every day of their lives as they try to follow Jesus and the teaching of his Church.  May the Holy Spirit work powerfully through their lives.








 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
