While In Adoration

While in Adoration this late morning as I was praying and lifting the prayer intentions of those who have requested prayers; for my own family and communities. I was prompted to pray for the conversion and repentance of those who have blasphemed against the Holy Spirit before they are eternally dammed.

Earlier that morning just before the Eucharistic Celebration began as I was reflecting on the Gospel, this inspiration came to mind; that if someone were to ask you how does one blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. Simply share this….

The Holy Spirit is the combined love of God the Father and God the Son. By rejecting the mercy and love of the Holy trinity, You are rejecting the One living God. That in short is blaspheming against the Holy spirit.

According to John Paul II, the sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit “consists…in refusal to accept the salvation which God offers to man through the Holy Spirit, working through the power of the cross. If man rejects the ‘convincing concerning sin’ which comes from the Holy Spirit,” he is in essence rejecting the “redemptive power of Christ’s blood” (46). And this “blasphemy against the Holy Spirit consists precisely in the radical refusal to accept this forgiveness [of sin],” and correspondingly the person claims the right to “persist in evil” (46).

So as I prayed for all those who knowingly or unknowingly have done so, I was then led to see the total opposite…..

“Blessed are those who allow the Holy Spirit to over shadow them as Mary our Blessed Mother did” a voice in my head proclaimed. To allow the love of our Lord Jesus to grow more deeply within us. To dwell within us. To bring His Peace, love and joy within us to all we meet along the way. So that they might be born into new life with Him. Then we all shall be consecrated unto Him by the Holy Spirit. We are His people and He is our God, now and forever. Amen
