This weekend we celebrate the feast of Pentecost.

It is always a great feast day celebrating new life, energy, vibrancy, positivity, creativity, hope, light and so much more. It would be great if there was a simple formula in our search for God. We are often unsure where to start and how to begin. Our searches are many, from our local Church, attending Mass and saying prayers that vary from traditional to deeply personal. Some find that these simply are not for them and search elsewhere. These searches include finding God in the humdrum of daily life, music, reading, reflection,
meditation, relaxation and so on. Whatever and wherever our search, it is good that we are searching.

The Spirit of God knows no limits. It is we who have created obstacles and made it almost a burden at times to be a follower of Jesus. Pentecost Sunday is all about enthusiasm and energy. There are many days when we lack energy and motivation. But God’s love for us is constantly bubbling over with life and enthusiasm. Nothing can change this. We pray to the Holy Spirit to re-energise us and to help us find the missing links on our daily journey.

Spirit of God, fill our hearts, make us loving
Spirit of God fill our minds, make us wise
Spirit of God, fill our lives, make us joyful
Spirit of God fill our Church, make us faithful
Spirit of God fill our land, make it peaceful
Spirit of God, fill our homes, make them happy
Spirit of God fill us all and make us holy. Amen.
