Reflection for Saturday October 15, Saint Teresa of Jesus, Virgin and Doctor of the Church; Luke 12:8-12

Luke 12:8-12
Jesus said to his disciples: “I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.

“Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what your defense will be or about what you are to say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say.”

Reflection:
Do you want to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life?

One of the major requisites for us to have an awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is to first acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Then, after that the gift of the presence of the Holy Spirit and everything else about the church would follow.

And this is when the Holy Spirit begins to work wonders in our spiritual lives. It opens us to the various avenues about the majestic history of the church and the many truths about it. We also start to become more aware of the true purpose of our life in this world.

As the Holy Spirit opens us to the many truths of the church it simultaneously works in our lives by purifying us of our many sins. It enlightens us to the gifts of: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety and Fear of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2-3).

Let us therefore seek out Jesus Christ first by knowing more about Him. Let us be faithful to Him and we surely would feel the outpouring gifts of the Holy Spirit. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
