Third Day of Holy Spirit Novena
The Fruit of the Spirit is Peace.
The disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them, "Peace be with you. As the Father sent me, so I send you." And after saying this, he breathed on them. (Jn 20:20-22)
Missionary Cenacle Meditations
Recently, our Brothers on the farm were waiting for high winds to calm down so they might plands seeds in well prepared fields. One of them said, "If we sow this seed now it will be all blown away." That evening a calm came, the seed was sown and remained safe. So our souls must be calm if we are to receive the inspiration of the HOly Spirit. (p.323)
In baptism, I received the Holy Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is already mine. What does the peace of God feel like? How does it ssend me forth?
