The Church recalls that the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles when “suddenly there came a sound from heaven,” and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles. They received the visible presence of God in the form of fire. Since God is love, Jesus Christ says: If a man loves Me, he will keep My word.” Our love for God is therefore proved by our works. We love God when we keep His commandments and deny ourselves the gratification of our appetites. As baptized Christians, we must always call to mind our great dignity because we have God abiding as a guest in our souls. We must therefore cleanse our hearts and minds from all filth and works of iniquity. Jesus says: “We will come to him, and make our abode with him.”

Fr. Jeffery Fasching
