How I see the spirit moving in Culture and society Colleen Thomas // Religion II Digital - Block E // January 9-22, 2017

Salvation is already accomplished through the life and death of Jesus Christ, but the saving work of God is not yet complete.

Salvation is not yet at its final fulfillment. The Father and the Son sent the Spirit to fill the world and invite all people to the waters of Salvation and the Kingdom of God.

The mission of the Holy Spirit is inseparable from the mission of Jesus Christ.

Some images of how the Holy Spirit is represented in our lives.
We as Catholics can use the Holy Spirit to guide us as we follow the Gospel Values for a thriving world: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, forgive those who harm you, give to everyone who reaches out for help, and do unto others as you would have them done unto you.
"See, how they love one another."

This quote is from Tertullian, who lived at a time when many Christians were willing to die on behalf of their faith. Tertullian identified this self-sacrificing love as the reason for the growth of the church.

Sadly but truthfully, situations like this still exist in many parts of the world. I think the Holy Spirit is ever present in those individuals who stand up for their faith even under threat of immediate harm.

We can also use the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit to guide us.

  • Counsel (Right Judgement)
  • Understanding
  • Wisdom
  • Knowledge
  • Courage (Fortitude)
  • Piety (Reverence)
  • Fear of the Lord (Wonder and Awe)

Thank you for watching!
