A reader alerted me to this great PC and PIXEL cartoon.
We have moved into the period between Ascension THURSDAY and Pentecost during which we, as a Church, pray in a particular way for the help of the Holy Spirit.
If we are full of ourselves, it is hard to accept the graces God offers.
Yesterday I heard a priest celebrating his 60th anniversary of ordination lay out plainly what a priest’s role is:
To try to keep as many people as possible out of hell and help as many as possible to heaven.
Pretty straight forward.
So… in the spirit of the cartoon, above… in the spirit of praying to the Holy Spirit, especially in the words of the Veni Sancte Spiritus…
Wash that which is unclean,
water that which is dry,
heal that which is wounded.
Bend that which is inflexible,
warm that which is chilled,
make right that which is wrong.
GO TO CONFESSION.
