Thought of the Day June 5, 2024 The promise of Christ

By 11:22 AM

 "The Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life's different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship, but to keep her on her course."  St. Boniface

This is the role of the Holy Spirit. When the Church is attacked externally by distorted teachings or internally by human sin, the wind of the Spirit keeps the Bark of Peter steady and firm. As the Spirit of Truth, the Advocate enables the Church to discern the true doctrine from erroneous speculations. This has been part of the history of the Church over the centuries. As the Spirit of holiness, the Spirit raises up reformers within the community of believers to recall the Bride of Christ to its original mission of witness as the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic church. As Jesus said: the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church. This is our faith
