    for Sunday, May 8, 2016

    This is a time between Ascension and Pentecost. This is a time when we should long for the Spirit to come upon us. We have the Spirit already but always we can renew that desire to share more in the Spirit and to have the courage to live and preach our faith.

    The first reading, from the Acts of the Apostles, today begins with these words: Stephen, filled with the Holy Spirit. Many of the early Christians were filled with the Spirit in such a way that they could not be silent. They had to proclaim the message of Jesus. Many, if not most of us, are more timid in proclaiming our faith. Perhaps if we are put to the test, we would become as strong as some of those early Christians. Even if we are not put to the test, we must seek ways to be witnesses to Jesus, speaking of His presence by the way we live.

    The second reading, from the Book of Revelation, speaks to the end of time, but also to the present time, when it says, with such beauty: Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life - giving water. The one who gives this testimony says, "Yes, I am coming soon." Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! May we also invite the Lord Jesus to come into our lives, into our communities, into our countries—as well as into our souls. May we thirst for the life - giving water!

    The Gospel of John brings us back to the central message of Jesus, His teaching for us and for all humankind: that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them. We need to stop and just listen to the meaning of those words once again. Jesus is praying that the love with which the Father loves him may be in us and that Jesus Himself may be in us. What a strong prayer! Can we believe that this is what Jesus wants?

    In these days between Ascension and Pentecost, we must keep calling on the Spirit to come into our lives. If the Spirit is in us, so is Jesus and so is the Father. At the level of faith, we believe that it is so. Yet we have to convert our whole being to believe in this reality! Come, Lord Jesus! Come, Holy Spirit! May we be filled with God's grace this day and may our longing to understand and live the heavenly mysteries be deepened. Come, God of our ancestors! Transform us in the love of Jesus by the power of the Spirit. Amen.

    Readings of the day:
    First Reading: Acts 1.1-11
    Second Reading: Ephesians 1.17-23
    Gospel: Luke 24.46-53

    Homily from Abbot Philip, OSB, of the Benedictine Abbey of Christ in the Desert.
