Quote of the Day – 19 February
Making a path for the Holy Spirit
Conversion has two elements for its completion.
First, we need to rid ourselves of the things that hinder gospel living. That includes not only “stuff” but also habits, attitudes, mindsets, lifestyles etc. that hinder hearing and living the Gospel.
Secondly, conversion calls us to commit our lives to Jesus and His gospel call.
It calls for practising charity, having hope, learning how to love all people.
If we only clean out our lives, we create a vacuum into which all sorts of things can enter (cf. Luke 11:24-26).
Our inner housecleaning ordinarily should open a path for the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.
~ Lester Bach OFM Cap, Seeking a Gospel Life
Today’s Saint of the Day, St Conrad of Piacenza is a perfect example of making the path! St Conrad Pray for us!
