“Caller unknown” often leads to the marketer’s purgatory of Voice Mail , or even to the marketer’s hell of the Spam Folder. Do we really listen to the calls of the poor… or put their cries in voicemail?
Reading Pope Francis’ reflections, I was able to shift my focus and see more clearly what each of these seven gifts of the Spirit look like. I found much food for thought and personal prayer.
A great theologian started me thinking. He wondered whether if the word Trinity was missing from the vocabulary of everyday Christians would any notice. Just think of the last time you prayed to the Trinity. I have had to re-evaluate my thoughts about the mystery we call the Trinity.
I thought I knew its meaning… until I “binged” on a master class on the Our Father given by Pope Francis.
In 16 five minute or so master classes I saw it as if for the first time.
This year I have had a similar experience when Pope Francis shared his insights into Pentecost and the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
“Let Me See Again!” I never saw any connection between the life-changing experience of a blind beggar being given his sight and the Pentecost gift of Jesus’ spirit under the appearances of tongues of fire.
Now I cant “unsee” it.
