Saturday 12 January

By this power of the Spirit, God’s children can bear much fruit (CCC 736).

John 3:22-30
He must grow greater, I must grow smaller.

Now we see Jesus beginning to baptise.  Jesus’ baptism was with fire and the Holy Spirit. In Baptism we are immersed in Jesus’ death and resurrection. In Confirmation we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Just as John the Baptist knew the time had come for him to give way. So we too must give way and decrease so that the Lord can increase in us. We lose nothing of ourselves in this because this is living in the Spirit. ‘I no longer live but Christ lives in me’ (Galatians 2:20). The ‘showing forth’ of the Lord continues! As we grow in our relationship with Jesus he can ‘grow’ in us. This is the work of the Holy Spirit and we seek it each day.

Lord, bless me with the gift of your Holy Spirit this day so that all I do and say may come from Christ my Lord.

Our Father…,   Ten Hail Marys …, Glory be…
