January Monthly Reflection--- THE HOLY SPIRIT


The Holy Spirit

Who is the Holy Spirit? Some people might ask this question, especially if they do not know Jesus in a personal way. The basic answer to this question is found in John 14:16 ‘And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever’. Here Jesus is promising the Holy Spirit to His disciples. The promise is that the Holy Spirit will always be with the disciples. God will never abandon the disciples.

Jesus further reveals to them who the Holy Spirit is through John 14:26 ‘But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.’ Jesus’ promise further extends that the Holy Spirit will teach the disciples of all things God wants to express to mankind. This, in a nutshell is who the Holy Spirit is.

When the Holy Spirit was experienced by the disciples at Pentecost, in Acts 2:1-4 it is explained that ‘When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.’

The promise of Jesus to His disciples was fulfilled at Pentecost. This same promise was not only for the disciples, but for every baptised person. Today, the Holy Spirit is as ever present. The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Holy Trinity, is a mystery which one can only partly understand. It is faith in God that will help us to experience and grow closer to the Holy Spirit.

Come to me



Who is not burdened? Who has no problems in life? Who does not find difficulties at work?
Most probably all of us do. All people from every corner of the world are facing some kind of difficulty in life. But still there is hope.

Jesus said come to me. Come to me all those who are burdened. Jesus said these words in a personal way to each person, to bring us Salvation.

So let us rejoice, even in the most difficult situation in life… and let us go to Jesus.

A Christmas prayer



Lord Jesus,
It is another Christmas to remember of your birth.
To recall your goodness for being born to save us.

Lord Jesus,
Thank you for being amongst us.
Forgive us for our sins.

Lord Jesus,
This Christmas make it special for those who are sick, bring healing to their lives.
Be with those who are dying, and comfort them with your love.
Help the broken families, to be reunited through your grace.
For all those who persecute the Church and live a life of despair, give them your peace in a mysterious way.

Lord Jesus,
Thank you for being such a lovely gift to all those who have faith.
Strengthen their faith, to continue to share your love with others.
Be with us, as we share the Good News.
Make this Christmas, a blessing for all.
