(St. Angela Merici, Virgin)
Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies that people utter will be forgiven them. But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin.” Mk_3:22-30
Jesus gave the example of a house divided against itself, and how that house will never stand. The Holy Spirit is a part of us when we accept Him in Baptism. But when we blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, we, in reality, are blaspheming against our very selves. A very silly thing to do, and, with enormous consequences. Yes, we make lots of mistakes in our lives, and all will be forgiven. But the one thing we do not do, is speak against our God. For He is our life and our salvation. And that is eternal!
