Joy of the Holy Spirit

Joy of the Holy Spirit

Fifty days after Christ’s resurrection, the Holy Spirit was poured into a frail group of a hundred and twenty disciples who had gathered together in an upper room in Jerusalem that day. How could such frail people become such powerful witnesses?

The world has done its best to convince us that fleshly pleasures bring us happiness and that sin has no consequence.  The world (who thinks that sin is a made-up legal problem instead of something that steals life from us) says, it’s not really sin if it gives you pleasure…if it makes you happy!  However, this Saint, who had a salacious beginning, challenges us to take a more realistic look at these things and at ourselves.
