Carmelite homily for Wednesday (Easter VI), May 20, 2020

May 20, 2020 |

Carmelite Homilies are recorded by Fr. Gregory Houck, O, Carm., following the Cycle of Readings of the Common Lectionary. His preacher’s blog is found at: fathergreg.com

In today’s Gospel Jesus says that , ‘the Spirit of Truth will take what is Jesus’ and give that to us.’  Giving us that richness, that greatness, to trust the Spirit to give us what Jesus has.  This is why, I think, Saint Teresa of Avila can say, “How can we share our gifts lavishly if we do not understand that we are rich?”  That’s the call of the Gospel.  The Spirit           will take is Jesus’ and give to us.  But why?  So we can give to others, to share lavishly, because we are rich.
