Tuesday, May 23, 2017:
Jesus said: “My people, in the Gospel I am preparing My apostles for when I would leave them in My Ascension into heaven. I told them that I had to leave so the Holy Spirit, or the Advocate could come down upon them. You also are preparing for Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came down among the apostles in tongues of fire. My faithful already have received the gifts of the Holy Spirit at Baptism and Confirmation. You all are Temples of the Holy Spirit, and you receive the Blessed Trinity in Holy Communion. The account of St. Paul and Silas in the Acts of the Apostles was quite dramatic when the earthquake opened the prison cells and freed their chains. They kept the jailer from killing himself, and they baptized and converted him and his family to faith in Me. The jailer was grateful for being saved, and he tended to the wounds of St. Paul and Silas, and fed them a meal. In the same way My faithful also need to be grateful for their gift of faith, and they can thank Me by sharing their faith in converting others. In this way you can share your love with Me and your love for your neighbors.”
