Our Lady calls us to pray to the Holy Spirit

The Virgin Mary calls us to pray with her to the Holy Spirit in order for us to draw strength and force from above, to be wrapped in the power coming from God. Together with the apostles she was perseverant in her prayer waiting for Jesus’ promise – the Holy Spirit.

 She is the spouse of the Holy Spirit and full of mercy. She is the one who knows best the mysterious power of the Holy Spirit and therefore knows how much we still need his strength today. We received the Holy Spirit in the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, and we have heard that he exists. And yet, it seems as if all other spirits are around us but the Holy Spirit.

That is why Our Lady’s call is serious and so much needed. The only way towards the experience of the strength of the Holy Spirit is prayer. Fr Ljubo Kurtović OFM
