HOMILY FOR THURSDAY: SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER

HOMILY FOR THURSDAY: SEVENTH WEEK OF EASTER

Acts 22:30, 23:6-11; Psalm 15; John 17:20-26

⇒⇒⇒⇒

The first reading presents us with Paul’s trial in Jerusalem and his vision to go to Rome. In the gospel, Jesus prays to the Father and asks that all believers may be unified. He also prays for strength for his followers to be able to witness to him everywhere. We too are called to witness to Christ irrespective of personal comfort and gain. In witnessing, trials are track records for excellence; do not be discouraged.

Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit 

On my knees  before the great multitude of heavenly witnesses I offer myself, soul and body to You, Eternal Spirit of God. I adore the brightness of Your purity, the unerring keenness of Your justice, and the might of Your love. You are the Strength and Light of my soul. In You I live and move and am. I desire never to grieve You by unfaithfulness to grace and I pray with all my heart to be kept from the smallest sin against You. Mercifully guard my every thought and grant that I may always watch for Your light, and listen to Your voice, and follow Your gracious inspirations. I cling to You and give myself to You and ask You, by Your compassion to watch over me in my weakness. Holding the pierced Feet of Jesus and looking at His Five Wounds, and trusting in His Precious Blood and adoring His opened Side and stricken Heart, I implore You, Adorable Spirit, Helper of my infirmity, to keep me in Your grace that I may never sin against You. Give me grace O Holy Spirit, Spirit of the Father and the Son to say to You always and everywhere, “Speak Lord for Your servant hears.” Amen.
