A weekly spiritual video talk will be posted every Sunday on this Friends of Divine blog until Palm Sunday - the 6-part DIVINE LENTEN 2018 WEEKLY VIDEO REFLECTION SERIES - so that every one of us will seek to live for Jesus with no self-willed barriers in our hearts and mind but to proclaim the Glory of God.
The fifth video of the 6-part DIVINE LENTEN 2018 WEEKLY VIDEO REFLECTION SERIES at the top of this post is "“ASK FOR THE FULLNESS OF HOLY SPIRIT IN YOU” by Rev. Fr. Mathew Naickomparambil V.C., Spearhead of Divine-Potta Ministry.
In this Spirit-filled sharing, Fr. Matthew exhorts every Catholic to lead Spirit=filled lives. “Much of our sorrow, sadness, guilt feelings and negative thinking disappear when we are washed in the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Moreover, whenever we hear the Word of God, there is the descent of the Holy Spirit coming upon us and we are filled with Joy, Peace, Love and all the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.”
Fr. Mathew shares his first experience when the Lord spoke to him at the age of 20 in the month of July 1966 - “‘Ask and you shall receive the Holy Spirit.’ This is a message for everyone who believes in Jesus. There is a great provision for you according to the Will of God that you can be filled with the Holy Spirit to the level of overflowing from you to others.”
“What is the Good News of Salvation? ‘Believe in the Lord Jesus, you and your family will be saved.’ (Acts 16:31) Jesus is in control of everything. All we have to do is pray in the Name of Jesus over all our difficult situations.”
“The word ‘Alleluia’ is from the Bible. It is used in Heaven to praise, thank, glorify and rejoice in the Almighty God. Whenever we say this word of praise, we get a new anointing and empowerment of the Holy Spirit coming upon us and consequently we are delivered from many bondages and afflictions.”
In the final video of the Divine Lenten 2018 Reflection series next Sunday, Rev. Fr. Augustine Vallooran V.C., Director, Divine Retreat Centre, Kerala, India speaks on a soul searching topic - "AM I REALLY LIVING?”
Please do share this Divine Lenten 2018 Weekly Video Reflection series with your loved ones, prayer groups and friends to make this sacred season of Lent a truly transforming experience in our Christian life.
