30 Days to the Gift, the Love Between the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit. From the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption to the Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary from the Inspired Works of Venerable Conchita.
Jesus reminds us that the Holy Spirit is the one who teaches us about God and brings to our mind all that Jesus has taught. He says in John 14:26: “The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you.” Jesus who is true God gives us the Holy Spirit. As a man, he prays for his coming, but as God gives us the Holy Spirit. He says to the apostles: “Receive the Holy Spirit.” The Apostles, instructed by Jesus and formed by the Holy Spirit, did not miss an opportunity to speak of the Spirit. They communicated Him and proclaimed the absolute necessity of submitting to His actions. Let us always do the same.
When Jesus said that he would ask the Father to give us another Consoler, He wanted to show us the Father’s Love, and how He and the Father share the same Love in sending us the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Love. Oh, the depths of the Love of the Father and the Son, being moved by our misery and sorrow, they send the third Person of the Blessed Trinity for our consolation! Everything that God does for us is a result of His Love!
How does Jesus give us the Holy Spirit? He does this by pleading to His Father as man, and by dying on the Cross for our sins. This was the price that Jesus paid for the Divine Gift of the Holy Spirit. This is what St. John means when he says “that there was no Spirit yet, because Jesus has not yet been glorified.”
Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us always. This unbelievable love of Jesus abides in us during our life, our death and for all eternity. His love is tender, delicate and infinite. Saint Paul has told us that anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Him. Without the Holy Spirit we can do nothing good. We cannot even pronounce the name of God.
Let us seek to extend the reign of the Holy Spirit, by becoming inflamed with His Love. Let us consecrate ourselves to Him, and pray that the whole human race be consecrated to the Holy Spirit. May He dwell at every instance within us. May He be our trusted confidant, so that by being faithful to His holy inspirations, everything about us may unceasingly lead us to Him, who is totally one with the Father and the Son.
Prayer of Conchita
“Oh Heavenly Father and Divine Word, You are infinitely compassionate! Oh Holy Spirit, the Friend of the human race, in You we possess Love in Person, Grace in Person and jubilant joy and peace in Person. We desire to know You more, to adore You with even greater respect, and to love You and trust You from the depths of our hearts. Oh Holy Spirit, I love You with Mary and I will love You through her. I desire to live in You as Mary did for Your glory, and in gratitude for all the expressions of love of each Person of the Blessed Trinity! Amen.
