“Let us ask ourselves today: Are we open to “God’s surprises”? Or are we closed and fearful before the newness of the Holy Spirit?” (Pope Francis, Pentecost 2013)
The 50 days of Easter is a time of pregnant waiting; we anticipate the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. The question we each could ask is: do I really want God’s Spirit to come and change my life? We need to remember to be careful what we pray for because God is a dynamic Spirit, always wanting more of us and with us.
I pray we each may be open to God’s surprises and welcome the Spirit’s gifts as they arrive at the doorstep of our heart.
Thank you for your gift which always speaks to us of your faith in and support of our life of prayer. May the Spirit of our gracious God move all of us closer to God’s vision of how this world is to be.
Blessings and all good,
Sr. Carolyn Forgette, OSC
And all your grateful Poor Clare Sisters
