“Above all, obey the counsels and inspirations which the Holy Spirit unceasingly sends into our hearts.” (St. Angela Merici)
How do we know the Holy Spirit is counseling and inspiring us? By listening to the still, small voice of God. Perhaps it will bring us a word to say to ease a difficult relationship. Maybe it will fill us with a feeling of Peace as we consider taking a certain action. It might be a gentle push to reach out to someone in need.
Angela encourages us to act, move, believe, hope, make efforts, and cry out to God with all our heart. She assures us we will see marvelous things. The Holy Spirit really does renew the face of our earth, moment by moment.
Take a few moments to look at the beauty of the windows in St. Thomas More Newman Center at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. What counsels is the Holy Spirit sending into your heart today?
