Feast of St. Ignatius of Antioch

Eph. 2:1-10 | Ps.100:1-5 | Lk. 12:13-21

Paul’s letter to the Ephesians is a hymn of praise to God.  He urges us to realize all that God has called us to: the riches of the inheritance of Christ, immeasurable greatness in the power of Christ.  Paul also reminds us that God has raised Christ above all and put all under His feet and made Him head over all.  God has given Him the power to anoint all of us with this inheritance.  Jesus reminds us that those who acknowledge Him will be acknowledged to the Father and those who deny Him will be denied by God before the Father. Jesus then tells us not to worry if we are brought to trial on His behalf.  We are to remember that the Holy Spirit dwells within us and will tell us what to say.  We need to remember that the Holy Spirit will always guide and direct us .   The first thing we need to do is to listen.  If we don’t, then we won’t know what the spirit is trying to teach us.

Spend time with Paul’s words from Ephesians.  Allow those words to penetrate and touch the core of your being.  Hear Christ tell you about the gift of the Holy Spirit.  Allow yourself to spend time with Christ and the Holy Spirit.  Ask for the grace to rely on the Holy Spirit each day of your life.
