“Go into the whole world and proclain the Gospel to every creature.”

Mark 16:9-15

April 30, 2011 Bible Reading and Gospel

The mission of the Holy Spirit is precisely to remind us of what Jesus taught ( Cf. Jn.14:26 ). He is faithful to his mission by teaching Christ. For us, too, possessing the faith leads to sharing it. What is alive tends to grow. “Those who have come into genuine contact with Christ cannot keep him for themselves, they must proclaim him. This proclamation must not be imposed but proposed ‘with confidence…’” (Pope John Paul II, Address of June 5 , 2001). We must proclaim the one truth we have received. “He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears.” Our love for Christ can be measured by how faithful we are in transmitting his message without alteration. How great is my love for him?

Dear Jesus, send me your Holy Spirit so that I might better know and love you. Grant me a hunger to know you better, to experience you more deeply. May my knowledge of you set my heart on fire so that I cannot keep you to myself. Aid me in faithfully communicating you and your message of love.
