Readings & Reflections: Tuesday of the Sixth Week of Easter & St. Gregory VII, May 23,2017
The Holy Spirit comes to convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness. The jailer experiences this righteousness at the earthquake, when Paul and Silas refuse to escape. He begs to be saved, and “his household rejoiced at having come to faith in God.” God’s name and promise prevail.
“Come Holy Spirit, and let the fire of your love burn in my heart. Let me desire only what is pure, lovely, holy and good and in accord with the will of God and give me the courage to put away all that is not pleasing in your sight.” Amen.
