And Suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a mighty wind Coming.  And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon each and every one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, , and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.

                                                        --Acts of the Apostles 2:2-4

Holy Family Radio Prayer & Thoughts 

 

All of us here at Holy Family Radio wish all of our listeners a most blessed, happy, and holy Season of Pentecost/Ordinary Time!

 

COME, O Creator Spirit blest,
And in our souls take up Thy rest,
Come with Thy grace and Heavenly aid,
And fill the hearts which Thou hast made.

Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry,
O highest gift of God most high!
Ofount of life! O fire of love!
Abd sweet anointing from above.

Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known,
The finger of God's hand we own;
The promise of the Father, Thou!
Who dost the tongue with power endow.

Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts o'erflow with love;
With patience firm and virtue high,
The weakness of our flesh supply.

Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.

Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know,
And Thee through endless times confessed
Of both the Eternal Spirit blest.

All glory while the ages run
Be to the Father and the Son
Who rose from death; the same to Thee,
O Holy Ghost, eternally. Amen.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:

If I am tempted to doubt the Resurrection, think about Creation, and, think about the seed of a plant which remains after a plant dies.  The seed is born in death and yet when planted in the ground it brings new life.​  So what should be easier to do? To create from nothing or bring that which is dead and planted in the ground to life again?
