I hope you have experienced a bright Easter of Jesus’ resurrection. We are approaching the great solemnity of Pentecost. The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us of the deep meaning of that solemnity where it says: “Fifty days after the Resurrection at Pentecost the glorified Jesus Christ poured out the Spirit in abundance and revealed him as a divine Person so that the Holy Trinity was fully manifest. The mission of Christ and of the Spirit became the mission of the Church which is sent to proclaim and spread the mystery of the communion of the Holy Trinity.”
It is therefore fundamental for each one of us to live an ever closer relationship with the Holy Spirit so that He may guide, sanctify and enable us to live in Christ and send us out to bear witness to Christ’s life. To help you in this, I will share the message I have received from the Holy Spirit on the vigil of Pentecost, 1999, where He speaks of the necessity to live true intimacy with God, which is the basis of spiritual life.
I hope you will receive grace and strength from the Holy Spirit to live more and more immersed in the beatitude of divine life already here on Earth. It may seem like a utopia, but it is not; all of us can reach it with the powerful help of the Holy Spirit who leads us to experience, day after day, the greatness and goodness of God.
I greet you with love in Christ.
