Happy are the people whose God is the Lord. - Psalm 144:15
At a recent “Simbang Gabi” novena night mass, I greeted the congregation, “Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, receive the Holy Spirit, a gift freely given to us by our wonderful God through His beloved son, Jesus Christ.” As we are modern day John the Baptist, we are called to prepare the way for our Lord, Jesus Christ. Let us claim Holy Spirit power and place God back in His rightful place in our lives.
As we start each encounter in prayer, we acknowledge the omniscient power of God, and we bring the most powerful healer into our midst- the power of Love. We joyfully proclaim, the spirit of God has anointed us as an ambassador for Christ. Happy and blessed are the people whose God is the Lord. Indeed, all we need to fix the world is to love one another. God is our potter, and we are the clay. We inhale love, exhale gratitude and focus on Jesus, our guiding light.
And we give Him all the glory!
