About Today Readings

Isaiah 11:1-10. Justice shall flourish in his time, and fullness of peace for ever – Psalm 71(72):1-2, 7-8, 12-13, 17. Luke 10:21-24.

Sharing the joy of the Holy Spirit

It’s about this time of year, the Season of Advent, that classrooms gather the materials for children to make ‘Jesse Trees’ and discover Jesus’ family tree – the connections from one generation to the next. Overlaying the construction of the Jesse Tree is discovering the Advent Gospel attitudes of love, peace, joy and hope. We are reminded of some of the gifts of the Spirit too – wisdom, counsel, knowledge and fear of the Lord. At this time of year there is energy in the children, there is energy in the adults – is this the joy of the Holy Spirit that Jesus was filled with? Thank goodness he shared it around.
