Reflection for December 1, Tuesday of the First Week of Advent: Luke 10:21-24

Luke 10:21-24
Jesus rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike. Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”

Turning to the disciples in private he said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I say to you, many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.”

Reflection:
What do we need to do to fully grasp the grace of the Holy Spirit in our lives? We need to be humble, we need to be childlike such is the life of Jesus—full of humility full of childlike trust.

The Holy Spirit will reveal itself to us once we become humble and childlike towards God. The Holy Spirit will give us something that others don’t have and that is the enlightenment to discern the workings of God in our lives.

Notice the childlike excitement to be present always in the celebration of the Holy Mass. Observe the intense longing to submit ourselves to the Sacrament of Reconciliation/Confession. We know and feel something deeper about our faith. Yet not everyone has this gift of feeling the profound presence of God in their life. This is given free without any cost by the Holy Spirit to those who strive to dive deeper into our Catholic faith.

We impede the grace of the Holy Spirit into our lives when we trust more on our wealth instead of God. When we are self-righteous, when we are corrupt, when we curse, when we say profanities and swearwords. When we seek pornography and other forms of Sin. – Marino J. Dasmarinas

Let us pray:
Come Holy Spirit I need you. Come Holy Spirit I pray. Come with your strength and your power come in your own special way.

Come like a spring in the desert, come to the weary of soul. Lord let your sweet healing power touch me and make me whole. Amen.
