10-26-13 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

St. Paul said, “If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you,
the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also,
through his Spirit that dwells in you.”  Rom 8:1-11

And how do I know if His Spirit dwells within me?

Jesus told a couple of parables about repentance and Life (Lk 13:1-9).
If, as we said yesterday, when we make an error in righteousness, and it
immediately strikes us as evil, and we ask God’s forgiveness, “I’m sorry Lord,”
then we know that the Spirit dwells within us.
Yes, there still may be sins we commit that we’re not even aware of,
but we will learn – before it’s ever too late – BECAUSE of that Spirit within.

One of Jesus’ parables was about a fruitless fig tree that the owner wanted cut down.
But the gardener (Jesus) pleaded that the owner (God) give it one last chance to improve.  Jesus will always give us another chance.  We will be aerated and fertilized and loved.
And if none of that brings us to the repentance He desires –
then we’ve got to be pretty numb, pretty dead already.

Sometimes, that Spirit is already there, beloved,
and all we have to do is recognize Her.
ALWAYS that Spirit is there, unless we’ve killed her.
And even then, Jesus will give us “another year.”
Hope is never lost!
