Eastertide: Example… (Looking to Pentecost)

example…(looking to Pentecost)

“I have left you an example,
Now go and wait,” He said,
Follow faithfully My words;
They free you from all dread.”

Footsteps grand to step into,
They struggle as they wait,
Yet praises, prayer and song
Cause fear to dissipate

Until the Holy Flame of God,
Immense, consuming fire,
Invades each mind and mouth:
Hail Christ- their one desire!

We, too, follow in His steps,
As a child, her mother close;
For His return is imminent,
Come Christ, our Heaven-sent Host!

Reflect:
“When the Advocate comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, He will testify on My behalf. You also are to testify…All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that He will take what is Mine and declare it to you…for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and believed that I came from God…I have said this to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you face persecution. But take courage; I have conquered the world!” (John 15 and 16)
