Eucharistic Flame Prayer Meeting
14th June 2019
Bible words: John 16:12-15
12 “I have much more to tell you, but now it would be too much for you to bear. 13 When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God, he will lead you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own authority, but he will speak of what he hears and will tell you of things to come. 14 He will give me glory, because he will take what I say and tell it to you. 15 All that my Father has is mine; that is why I said that the Spirit will take what I give him and tell it to you.
Dear loving brothers and sisters,
Jesus told the disciples that he wants to say many things to them but they cannot fully understand it. The Holy Spirit will teach them. Luke 12:12 says “the Holy Spirit will teach you at the right time.” It is very nice to know we have a helper – the Holy Spirit. Spiritual life is led by the Holy Spirit. We can see in the bible our mother Mary was led by the Holy Spirit. So she walked on her life journey not only by eye sight by faith. Many difficulties she experienced during her life but she went forward. Looking at Jesus’ life he was always filled with the Holy Spirit and looking at the apostles’ life they were all empowered by the Holy Spirit after Pentecost. They had problems, too, but with the power of the Holy Spirit they all went forward. One Croatian nun had a beautiful dream several years before: A big flame started from earth and went up to the sky, and she heard a voice from the flame saying, “no one can put it down.”
Jesus said: I came to throw fire on the earth and how much I desire to see it burning.”
We can ask for this flame which comes from the Eucharist.
I wish you a very graceful prayer meeting,
Your loving brother in Christ,
Fr. Joseph Vadakkel
