Podcast: 9- The Holy Spirit and Grace

"I believe in the Holy Spirit...


"Now on the last, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, 'If anyone thirst, let him come to Me and drink.  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture says, From within him there shall flow rivers of living water.'  He said this, however, of the Spirit, Whom they who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit had not yet been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified"
(John 7, 37-39)

The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Blessed Trinity.  Jesus sent him to us so that we may have the living water of the Holy Spirit to nourish our soul.  

Symbols of the Holy Spirt:  (1) the dove, a symbol of love; (2) tongues of fire, also symbols of love; (3) the wind, the "breath of God," a symbol of the unseen power of love.

The Will of the Father

Today's Verse

"This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day."
John 6:40

Podcast: 8- The Redemption


"I believe ... in Jesus Christ ... Who ... suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; on the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead ... "


Jesus came into this world to show us how to love.  He wanted to give His life for us.  Jesus went to Jerusalem to die for us.  Jesus died for our sins and rose so that we might rise too.  This is the Redemption. 

We are the sheep, and Jesus is the Lamb of God.  Our sins are washed away by the blood of the Lamb of God.

Podcast: 7- The Incarnation


The angel Gabriel told Mary that her Son Jesus, the Lamb of God, would come to her by the power of the Holy Spirit.

We read in the Holy Bible:  "The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary.  And when the angel had come to her, he said 'Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you.  Blessed are you among women.'  When she had heard him she was troubled at his word...And the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace with God.  Behold, you...shall bring forth a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son the Most High...The Holy Spirit shall come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and therefore the Holy One to be born shall be called the Son of God.'  Mary said, 'Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to your word.'  And the angel departed from her."    (Luke 1, 26-38)

God really wanted to send His Son to us here on earth so that he could save all of us from our sins.  He did so in a way where He would be born poor, and grow up and work and suffer with us and for us.  God asked Mary to be the Mother of His Son, the Mother of God.  Mary said "Yes."

In this episode of All About My Catholic Faith you will learn about when, why, and how Jesus came to be.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment on this post.
