"Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful"

Friday, 6th week of Easter, May 11, 2018

 

We ask, first, that the Spirit come. The Holy Spirit is the "Paraclete," "Advocate": the one "called to our 

side." Jesus said, "I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate… to be with you forever, teach you everything, and remind you of all I have said to you" (John 14:16-26; 15:26).

 

Second we ask the Spirit to "fill" our hearts, "occupy all available space," leaving room in our hearts only for the Beautiful; in our minds only for the True; in our wills only for the Good that is of God. The Spirit makes us whole: undivided, unfragmented; one as God is One.

 

The Spirit comes to give us awareness of God's presence in us. Jesus said we will know the Spirit, "because he abides with you, and will be in you." We will know the Father is with us: "“I will not leave you orphaned." And that Jesus is with us: "I am coming to you." God's presence is Three in One.

 

"In the unity of the Holy Spirit" we are one with God as the Three Persons are One (John 17:11, 21): "You will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you," sharing one divine life: "Because I live, you also will live."

 

"Come, Holy Spirit, fill…" We are asking for the experience of divine life: to "be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:19).
