Thought of the Day June 2, 2017

"Since our weak minds cannot comprehend the Father or the
Son, we have been given the Holy Spirit as our intermediary and
advocate, to shed light on that hard doctrine of our faith, the
incarnation of God. We receive the Spirit of truth so that we can
know the things of God....It is the same with the human soul.
Unless it absorbs the gift of the Spirit through faith, the mind
has the ability to know God but lacks the light necessary for that
knowledge. This unique gift which is in Christ is offered in its
fullness to everyone. It is everywhere available, but it is given to
each man in proportion to his readiness to receive it. Its presence
is the fuller, the greater a man’s desire to be worthy of it. This
gift will remain with us until the end of the world, and will be
our comfort in the time of waiting. By the favors it bestows, it is
the pledge of our hope for the future, the light of our minds, and
the splendor that irradiates our understanding." (St. Hilary) Let
us invite the Holy Spirit to enlighten our mind and heart with a
greater clarity of understanding of the mysteries of God. Come,
Holy Spirit, come!
