How can we understand and live the Truth? Jesus himself knows that we are not able to bear its “weight.” That’s why during the last supper with his disciples, before returning to his Father, he promised to send his Spirit to explain his words to us and help us live them.

The Holy Spirit also speaks in the hearts of all believers, where he dwells and makes his “voice” heard.

He suggests that we forgive, serve, give and love, each in its own time.He teaches us what is good and what is evil. He reminds us to live the Word of Life that the Gospel places in our hearts month by month.

How should we live this month’s Word of Life?By listening to the inner voice that speaks within us, by being docile to the Holy Spirit who guides us, urges us on, gives us a push.

Christians have to follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit as they journey through life.

To better understand, and even amplify, this voice, let’s live in unity with one another, so that we can learn to listen to the voice of the Spirit not only within ourselves, but also “present among us, when we are united in his name.”

This made him very happy and so I kept it up, until we became good friends. My other classmates made some remarks about me, but I also realized that they respected me, and after a while, a group of my classmates joined us because they wanted to get to know him better.
