  • 00:00:04.040 --> 00:00:07.080
  • Hi, I'm Father Cedric Pisegna,
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:32.250
  • the host of Live with Passion.
  • 00:00:32.250 --> 00:00:34.040
  • I'm so glad that you tuned into the program.
  • 00:00:34.040 --> 00:00:37.040
  • I wanna talk to you about abundant life,
  • 00:00:37.040 --> 00:00:40.060
  • and the goodness of God.
  • 00:00:40.060 --> 00:00:42.080
  • I'll read to you from Acts chapter 19.
  • 00:00:42.080 --> 00:00:46.040
  • While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through
  • 00:00:47.140 --> 00:00:50.180
  • the upper country and he came to the city of Ephesus.
  • 00:00:50.180 --> 00:00:54.230
  • There, he found some disciples, and he said to them,
  • 00:00:54.230 --> 00:00:57.140
  • Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?
  • 00:00:57.140 --> 00:01:02.000
  • And they said, no, we haven't even heard
  • 00:01:02.000 --> 00:01:03.190
  • there is a Holy Spirit.
  • 00:01:03.190 --> 00:01:04.290
  • Then he said, Into what, then, were you baptized?
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:08.180
  • And they said, Into John's baptism.
  • 00:01:08.180 --> 00:01:10.280
  • And Paul said, John baptized with the baptism of repentance
  • 00:01:10.280 --> 00:01:15.100
  • and he told people to believe in the one who was
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:17.200
  • to come after him, Jesus.
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:19.280
  • And on hearing this, they were baptized in the name
  • 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:22.190
  • of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:24.290
  • And when Paul laid his hands on them,
  • 00:01:24.290 --> 00:01:27.100
  • the Holy Spirit came on them, they spoke with tongues
  • 00:01:27.100 --> 00:01:31.020
  • and they prophesied.
  • 00:01:31.020 --> 00:01:32.120
  • There were about 12 of them in all.
  • 00:01:32.120 --> 00:01:34.290
  • I remember, when I was a seminarian, one time,
  • 00:01:34.290 --> 00:01:37.190
  • I was ministering at an African-American church in Chicago,
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:41.120
  • this is the South Side of Chicago
  • 00:01:41.120 --> 00:01:43.150
  • and I'd be out there, in the pews,
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:45.060
  • and the priest would stand up there,
  • 00:01:45.060 --> 00:01:46.170
  • and he would say, God is good,
  • 00:01:46.170 --> 00:01:48.050
  • and everybody would reply, all the time.
  • 00:01:48.050 --> 00:01:50.210
  • And then, he would say, all the time.
  • 00:01:50.210 --> 00:01:53.220
  • And the people would reply, God is good.
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:56.190
  • And that's the name of this series,
  • 00:01:56.190 --> 00:01:58.240
  • that God is good all the time.
  • 00:01:58.240 --> 00:02:02.110
  • And because God is good, He lavishes in His goodness,
  • 00:02:02.110 --> 00:02:07.100
  • He pours out His Holy Spirit upon all people.
  • 00:02:08.160 --> 00:02:11.140
  • I remember, when He appeared to Moses, He said,
  • 00:02:11.140 --> 00:02:15.190
  • I'm gonna let my goodness pass before you,
  • 00:02:15.190 --> 00:02:18.250
  • and He proclaimed His name, He said, the Lord,
  • 00:02:18.250 --> 00:02:21.080
  • a God gracious, a God merciful, a God slow to anger,
  • 00:02:21.080 --> 00:02:26.080
  • and a God rich in steadfast love.
  • 00:02:27.130 --> 00:02:29.190
  • So the goodness of God is His characteristics,
  • 00:02:29.190 --> 00:02:33.240
  • it's His graciousness, His love, His mercy,
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:38.170
  • and the goodness of God is His Spirit being lavished
  • 00:02:38.170 --> 00:02:43.160
  • upon all people.
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:45.090
  • I remember, when I was a youth minister,
  • 00:02:45.090 --> 00:02:49.010
  • this is before I became ordained a priest,
  • 00:02:49.010 --> 00:02:52.100
  • I was ministering in St. Louis, Missouri,
  • 00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:55.070
  • and we had a group of people there,
  • 00:02:55.070 --> 00:02:58.020
  • probably about 10 of us in a small group called Renew,
  • 00:02:58.020 --> 00:03:01.260
  • and there were people, we were studying the Bible,
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:04.240
  • and we were gathered, because we wanted
  • 00:03:04.240 --> 00:03:06.120
  • to learn more about our faith.
  • 00:03:06.120 --> 00:03:08.170
  • I was a youth minister at the time,
  • 00:03:08.170 --> 00:03:10.040
  • and I was a leader of this small group,
  • 00:03:10.040 --> 00:03:12.140
  • and I remember, I was sitting there talking
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:14.100
  • about the Holy Spirit and how the Spirit
  • 00:03:14.100 --> 00:03:16.230
  • had touched my life, and working in my life
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:18.260
  • and leading me, and comforting me and guiding me,
  • 00:03:18.260 --> 00:03:21.160
  • and I'll never forget this woman
  • 00:03:21.160 --> 00:03:22.270
  • sitting right across from me,
  • 00:03:22.270 --> 00:03:24.190
  • you know, we were all studying the Bible,
  • 00:03:24.190 --> 00:03:26.070
  • studying about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:03:26.070 --> 00:03:28.020
  • She looked at me, and she said,
  • 00:03:28.020 --> 00:03:29.200
  • "Cedric, you're talking about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:03:29.200 --> 00:03:32.030
  • "How come we never hear this proclaimed from the pulpit,
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:35.160
  • "and who is this Holy Spirit you're talking about?"
  • 00:03:35.160 --> 00:03:38.060
  • I saw such hunger in her.
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:42.180
  • I saw such desire in her.
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:44.190
  • She wanted to know who the Holy Spirit is,
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:49.010
  • and I think, she represents millions of people
  • 00:03:49.010 --> 00:03:53.160
  • who have heard about the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:03:53.160 --> 00:03:56.220
  • but don't know who the Holy Spirit is.
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:03:59.190
  • I remember, one time, I was talking to a woman,
  • 00:03:59.190 --> 00:04:02.230
  • and she said, Father, I'm stuck in my prayer life,
  • 00:04:02.230 --> 00:04:05.050
  • and nothing seems to be happening,
  • 00:04:05.050 --> 00:04:07.110
  • and just going through the motions, same thing
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:10.000
  • over and over again, and I said,
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:12.010
  • well, you need to know about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:13.160
  • And she looked at me with a big smile on her face,
  • 00:04:13.160 --> 00:04:15.120
  • and she said, yes, Father,
  • 00:04:15.120 --> 00:04:17.040
  • I wanna know who the Holy Spirit is.
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:19.040
  • Oh, and perhaps, that's you.
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:23.010
  • You tune into the program, and yeah, you go to church,
  • 00:04:23.010 --> 00:04:25.240
  • and you believe in Jesus,
  • 00:04:25.240 --> 00:04:28.050
  • and you love God, but you don't really know
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:32.210
  • in a personal way who the Holy Spirit is,
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:36.150
  • and that's exactly what was going on with the Ephesians.
  • 00:04:36.150 --> 00:04:40.170
  • Paul came to Ephesus, by the way, this big, Greek colony,
  • 00:04:40.170 --> 00:04:44.220
  • Ephesus, big city, I've been there,
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:47.100
  • the remains of Ephesus are still there,
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:49.150
  • and he goes to this city, and he finds some believers.
  • 00:04:49.150 --> 00:04:54.150
  • Remember, Christianity back then was brand new,
  • 00:04:55.200 --> 00:04:57.110
  • and he's on his second missionary journey,
  • 00:04:57.110 --> 00:04:59.200
  • ends up in Ephesus, and so, he says to them,
  • 00:04:59.200 --> 00:05:03.130
  • did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:07.050
  • And the disciples said, no.
  • 00:05:07.050 --> 00:05:10.160
  • We haven't even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.
  • 00:05:10.160 --> 00:05:12.290
  • He says, now what were you baptized into?
  • 00:05:12.290 --> 00:05:14.200
  • And they said, John's baptism.
  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:16.070
  • Remember, John the Baptist was baptizing,
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.050
  • calling people to repentance, and he informs them
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:21.070
  • about the something more, the abundant life,
  • 00:05:21.070 --> 00:05:25.020
  • and that's exactly what Jesus said.
  • 00:05:25.020 --> 00:05:26.170
  • He said, I have come that you may have life,
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:29.140
  • and life abundant, something more than we already have,
  • 00:05:29.140 --> 00:05:33.080
  • so he informs them about the abundant life, he teaches them
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.260
  • about the Holy Spirit, lays hands on them,
  • 00:05:35.260 --> 00:05:38.010
  • and they begin to prophesy and speak in tongues.
  • 00:05:38.010 --> 00:05:41.120
  • In other words, they receive
  • 00:05:41.120 --> 00:05:42.110
  • the fullness of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:05:42.110 --> 00:05:44.130
  • and that's exactly what I want for you.
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:47.160
  • I want you to receive, through this program,
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:51.080
  • I don't want this just to be another program,
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:53.210
  • not just another episode, not just something on TV
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:57.120
  • that entertains you.
  • 00:05:57.120 --> 00:05:59.040
  • Rather, I believe that there's gonna be power right now,
  • 00:05:59.040 --> 00:06:02.190
  • grace, I did a series sometime back called,
  • 00:06:02.190 --> 00:06:07.000
  • A Rush of Grace, the Spirit rushed upon David,
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:11.270
  • and that same Spirit of God can rush upon you,
  • 00:06:11.270 --> 00:06:14.130
  • right now, as you're sitting in your home,
  • 00:06:14.130 --> 00:06:16.220
  • hospital, hotel, prison, whenever you are,
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:20.070
  • watching this program, and even if you've received
  • 00:06:20.070 --> 00:06:23.130
  • the Holy Spirit in the past,
  • 00:06:23.130 --> 00:06:25.060
  • in the Acts of the Apostles, it talks about how
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:27.180
  • they were refilled, over and over again.
  • 00:06:27.180 --> 00:06:31.150
  • So who is this Holy Spirit?
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:34.010
  • Revolutionizing power, a rush of grace,
  • 00:06:35.040 --> 00:06:40.010
  • abundant life, a personal relationship with God.
  • 00:06:41.160 --> 00:06:46.060
  • Not just an arbitrary force out there somewhere,
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:50.110
  • but God Himself.
  • 00:06:50.110 --> 00:06:53.050
  • Remember, God is good all the time,
  • 00:06:53.050 --> 00:06:56.030
  • all the time, God is good.
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:58.020
  • Jesus said, if you know how to give good gifts
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:06:59.220
  • to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father
  • 00:06:59.220 --> 00:07:02.050
  • give good things to those who ask?
  • 00:07:02.050 --> 00:07:04.070
  • Luke changes that to, how much more
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:06.000
  • will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit?
  • 00:07:06.000 --> 00:07:08.040
  • Talk about good, the Holy Spirit is transformative,
  • 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:13.020
  • and life changing, and I'm praying that you will ask
  • 00:07:14.160 --> 00:07:17.220
  • for this goodness that is the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:17.220 --> 00:07:20.270
  • So they said that they hadn't even heard
  • 00:07:20.270 --> 00:07:23.250
  • about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:25.000
  • Well, that's interesting.
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:26.270
  • In our Catholic Church, and I realize that some of you
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:30.190
  • aren't Catholic, many of you,
  • 00:07:30.190 --> 00:07:31.270
  • I hear from Baptists and Lutherans and Methodists
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:36.180
  • and Charismatics, and Non-Denominationals, and Catholics.
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:41.150
  • I'm not trying to make anybody Catholic,
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:43.040
  • I'm just trying to bring you
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:44.060
  • into a close relationship with Jesus.
  • 00:07:44.060 --> 00:07:46.240
  • I believe that our denomination has the fullness of truth,
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:50.180
  • but worship wherever you want.
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:52.120
  • Go to any church, and I pray that you will be filled
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:58.010
  • with the Holy Spirit as you do.
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:08:00.110
  • So in our Catholic Church, we have heard
  • 00:08:00.110 --> 00:08:04.090
  • about the Holy Spirit, but unfortunately,
  • 00:08:04.090 --> 00:08:07.130
  • many people don't know who the Holy Spirit is.
  • 00:08:07.130 --> 00:08:10.060
  • For example, we pray, as we begin Mass,
  • 00:08:10.060 --> 00:08:13.190
  • in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:08:13.190 --> 00:08:16.250
  • Well, that's how Mass begins.
  • 00:08:16.250 --> 00:08:19.200
  • Then, as the priest greets the congregation,
  • 00:08:19.200 --> 00:08:24.110
  • he says, "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 00:08:24.110 --> 00:08:27.170
  • "the love of God, the communion of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:08:27.170 --> 00:08:32.110
  • "be with you all," and that's how we begin Mass.
  • 00:08:32.110 --> 00:08:35.160
  • We greet the people with that greeting.
  • 00:08:35.160 --> 00:08:38.090
  • The communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all,
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:40.220
  • and to me, that is such an important greeting.
  • 00:08:40.220 --> 00:08:43.070
  • By the way, that comes right from the Bible.
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:44.240
  • That's how Paul greeted the Corinthians,
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:47.100
  • and it's such an important greeting,
  • 00:08:47.100 --> 00:08:50.230
  • because the communion of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:53.180
  • is the primary reason why the Holy Spirit was given to us.
  • 00:08:53.180 --> 00:08:58.180
  • You see, God wants intimacy, God wants union.
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:04.090
  • God wants communion with His people,
  • 00:09:07.010 --> 00:09:10.190
  • and I want you to know that you can have relationship
  • 00:09:10.190 --> 00:09:13.290
  • with God that is more than just God is a force
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:17.000
  • out there somewhere, an arbitrary force,
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:20.070
  • kind of in the heavens somewhere.
  • 00:09:20.070 --> 00:09:21.290
  • No, God is closer to us than we are to ourselves.
  • 00:09:21.290 --> 00:09:26.010
  • The communion of the Holy Spirit means intimacy,
  • 00:09:26.010 --> 00:09:30.210
  • it means oneness, it means a depth relationship
  • 00:09:30.210 --> 00:09:35.210
  • and this revolutionized my life as a teenager.
  • 00:09:36.260 --> 00:09:41.030
  • I was born and brought up Catholic,
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:44.120
  • wasn't really going to church after many years
  • 00:09:44.120 --> 00:09:46.210
  • of going to church, fell away, and then,
  • 00:09:46.210 --> 00:09:49.220
  • as I started to ask, remember,
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:51.280
  • if you know how to give good gifts to your children,
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:53.220
  • how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:56.170
  • to those to ask, I began asking for grace,
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:59.130
  • asking for wisdom, asking for God Himself,
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:04.030
  • and then, I was touched by the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:05.270
  • not right away, it takes time, you gotta keep seeking
  • 00:10:05.270 --> 00:10:10.020
  • and asking and knocking, and then, eventually,
  • 00:10:10.020 --> 00:10:14.170
  • I had this filling, you could call it,
  • 00:10:14.170 --> 00:10:17.010
  • this touch, this awakening, this rebirth, if you will,
  • 00:10:17.010 --> 00:10:21.170
  • this new consciousness, awareness of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:10:21.170 --> 00:10:25.210
  • that revolutionized my prayer life.
  • 00:10:25.210 --> 00:10:29.130
  • And I say my prayer life, because you know, in prayer,
  • 00:10:29.130 --> 00:10:32.050
  • we're not just trying to talk to God,
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.240
  • we're trying to relate to God, to have something real
  • 00:10:33.240 --> 00:10:38.170
  • and deep and intimate, and this changed me,
  • 00:10:38.170 --> 00:10:41.190
  • because previously, God was just kinda out there somewhere,
  • 00:10:41.190 --> 00:10:46.180
  • but then, when the Holy Spirit touched me,
  • 00:10:46.180 --> 00:10:48.210
  • God was real and personal,
  • 00:10:48.210 --> 00:10:51.170
  • something close, something intimate,
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:54.260
  • and that's what I want for all of you.
  • 00:10:54.260 --> 00:10:56.280
  • So we have heard about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:59.100
  • After the greeting, and the communion of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:04.080
  • Jesus told us to pray for this, and then,
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:07.260
  • remember, in the gospel of Luke, He said,
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:10.170
  • if you know how to give good gifts to your children,
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:12.090
  • how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit
  • 00:11:12.090 --> 00:11:14.140
  • to those who ask?
  • 00:11:14.140 --> 00:11:15.290
  • Remember, God is good all the time, and all the time,
  • 00:11:15.290 --> 00:11:20.100
  • God is good, and because He's good,
  • 00:11:20.100 --> 00:11:23.000
  • merciful, gracious, and slow to anger,
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:28.000
  • full of steadfast love, He will give.
  • 00:11:29.050 --> 00:11:32.240
  • For God so loved the world that He gave
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:35.020
  • His only begotten Son.
  • 00:11:35.020 --> 00:11:36.140
  • Well, He'll give His beautiful Holy Spirit, too.
  • 00:11:36.140 --> 00:11:40.000
  • When we ask the Holy Spirit to come upon these gifts,
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:43.190
  • the gifts of bread and wine,
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.210
  • that's called the miracle of transubstantiation,
  • 00:11:45.210 --> 00:11:49.120
  • and bread and wine, we believe, as Catholics,
  • 00:11:49.120 --> 00:11:53.130
  • are turned into, miraculously, turned into the very body
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:57.220
  • and the very blood of Jesus Christ.
  • 00:11:57.220 --> 00:12:00.040
  • There's a change that happens there, and as a priest,
  • 00:12:00.040 --> 00:12:03.280
  • I mediate that.
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:05.290
  • It's called the epiclesis, the calling down
  • 00:12:05.290 --> 00:12:09.120
  • of the Holy Spirit upon the gifts.
  • 00:12:09.120 --> 00:12:11.130
  • Well, in the same way, the Spirit comes to change us,
  • 00:12:11.130 --> 00:12:16.130
  • not into wine, not into the body of Christ,
  • 00:12:17.170 --> 00:12:21.110
  • but to change us, to transform us.
  • 00:12:21.110 --> 00:12:23.260
  • Notice the term Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:27.040
  • Number one reason why the Spirit comes
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:28.280
  • is to give us intimacy with God,
  • 00:12:28.280 --> 00:12:30.220
  • and then, to sanctify us, that means to make us,
  • 00:12:30.220 --> 00:12:35.220
  • to transform us, to change us, to give us virtue,
  • 00:12:37.040 --> 00:12:40.220
  • to make us courageous, to help us to be patient,
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:45.240
  • to help us to be loving and merciful,
  • 00:12:45.240 --> 00:12:48.070
  • so the Spirit comes to change us.
  • 00:12:48.070 --> 00:12:50.130
  • So we've heard of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:50.130 --> 00:12:52.220
  • I'm talking about a few things at Mass,
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:55.160
  • but many people don't know the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:58.210
  • and that's what was going on with the Ephesian church.
  • 00:12:58.210 --> 00:13:01.140
  • They said, we haven't even heard
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:03.100
  • that there is a Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:03.100 --> 00:13:04.130
  • but we have a leg up on them,
  • 00:13:04.130 --> 00:13:06.200
  • because at least we've heard about the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:08.220
  • but I want the Holy Spirit to be more than just theology.
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:12.290
  • I want it to be experiential for you.
  • 00:13:12.290 --> 00:13:17.040
  • I have many resources that you can check out at my website,
  • 00:13:17.040 --> 00:13:21.010
  • I have free booklets called A Revolution
  • 00:13:21.010 --> 00:13:25.120
  • and Experience Rebirth.
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:27.000
  • These are booklets that you can download,
  • 00:13:27.000 --> 00:13:29.140
  • and then, of course, my book Glorious Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:32.190
  • that may people have bought.
  • 00:13:32.190 --> 00:13:34.110
  • Second book that I've written, called Glorious Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:34.110 --> 00:13:38.090
  • because when you start to know the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:13:38.090 --> 00:13:41.090
  • what happens is you experience comfort.
  • 00:13:41.090 --> 00:13:43.290
  • Remember, the Spirit is called the Comforter,
  • 00:13:43.290 --> 00:13:47.160
  • and part of the comfort that comes is this glory,
  • 00:13:47.160 --> 00:13:51.030
  • this electricity, this beautiful pleasure from God,
  • 00:13:51.030 --> 00:13:55.220
  • and I want you to experience that.
  • 00:13:55.220 --> 00:13:58.030
  • I want you to know that you're not alone,
  • 00:13:58.030 --> 00:14:00.020
  • especially if you're going through a divorce or old age,
  • 00:14:00.020 --> 00:14:05.020
  • or a physical sickness of some sort,
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:09.100
  • or a breakup, or problems with money.
  • 00:14:09.100 --> 00:14:14.080
  • Jesus said, I am with you wherever you go,
  • 00:14:15.130 --> 00:14:18.030
  • and He's with us through the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:18.030 --> 00:14:20.220
  • So, at Mass, many different parts of the Mass
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:24.270
  • have to do with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:27.100
  • I talked about the introduction, the epiclesis,
  • 00:14:27.100 --> 00:14:29.220
  • coming up the gifts, and then, at the Creed,
  • 00:14:29.220 --> 00:14:33.060
  • the wonderful Nicene Creed, from the year 325 AD,
  • 00:14:34.170 --> 00:14:39.080
  • that talks about our faith in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:42.170
  • and it says, I believe in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:14:42.170 --> 00:14:45.210
  • the Lord, and the giver of life.
  • 00:14:45.210 --> 00:14:49.030
  • The Spirit is God Himself, breathed into us,
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:54.030
  • so that we can live forever.
  • 00:14:54.290 --> 00:14:57.100
  • And you can actually come to know the very person of God
  • 00:14:57.100 --> 00:15:00.250
  • in the depths of your heart.
  • 00:15:00.250 --> 00:15:02.080
  • And then, the Spirit brings what I call illumination.
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:08.040
  • The Spirit comes with all kinds of different gifts,
  • 00:15:09.180 --> 00:15:10.240
  • knowledge and counsel and understanding,
  • 00:15:10.240 --> 00:15:14.280
  • and fortitude, and piety, all these beautiful gifts,
  • 00:15:14.280 --> 00:15:19.220
  • but one of the gifts is called illumination.
  • 00:15:19.220 --> 00:15:23.050
  • Let me talk to you about it this way.
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.280
  • I remember, one of our saints in our church,
  • 00:15:24.280 --> 00:15:27.040
  • St. Vincent Pallotti, when he was a student,
  • 00:15:27.040 --> 00:15:30.200
  • he was studying, but he was really having trouble
  • 00:15:30.200 --> 00:15:32.190
  • with his studies, and as he was having trouble
  • 00:15:32.190 --> 00:15:35.130
  • with his studies, his mother said to him,
  • 00:15:35.130 --> 00:15:37.090
  • Vincent, pray to the Holy Spirit to help you.
  • 00:15:37.090 --> 00:15:40.080
  • This is good for all students.
  • 00:15:40.080 --> 00:15:42.040
  • So what he did is he prayed for help from the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:46.010
  • and the Spirit touched him in a powerful way,
  • 00:15:46.010 --> 00:15:47.260
  • and he became a star student.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:51.110
  • This knowledge, this illumination,
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:55.080
  • this help of the Holy Spirit, remember,
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:57.240
  • one of the terms for the Holy Spirit is the Paraclete,
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:16:01.060
  • that means the helper, and so, I think about the saints
  • 00:16:01.060 --> 00:16:04.150
  • in our tradition, saints like St. Catherine of Sienna,
  • 00:16:04.150 --> 00:16:09.080
  • who has been canonized as saint and a doctor of the church,
  • 00:16:09.080 --> 00:16:13.020
  • or St. Theresa.
  • 00:16:13.020 --> 00:16:15.040
  • These women weren't well-educated, and they became saints
  • 00:16:15.040 --> 00:16:20.040
  • and not only saints, doctors of the church.
  • 00:16:21.090 --> 00:16:24.090
  • Only a few women, in the history of the 2.000 year history
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:27.130
  • of the Catholic Church have been doctors of the church.
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:31.080
  • The Holy Spirit lavishes these gifts upon people
  • 00:16:31.080 --> 00:16:35.010
  • and I want you to know that the Spirit can bring
  • 00:16:35.010 --> 00:16:38.160
  • illumination into your life,
  • 00:16:38.160 --> 00:16:40.220
  • and knowledge and understanding and help with the decisions
  • 00:16:40.220 --> 00:16:44.160
  • that you have, the everyday decisions.
  • 00:16:44.160 --> 00:16:46.240
  • There were many images of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.270
  • in the Catholic Church, too.
  • 00:16:48.270 --> 00:16:50.040
  • For example, in St. Peter's Basilica,
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:52.250
  • there's that beautiful alabaster window of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:57.130
  • You'll see a dove, and I love it
  • 00:16:57.130 --> 00:16:59.100
  • when the light comes through, it's heavenly, and the Spirit,
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:04.010
  • of course, is portrayed as a dove,
  • 00:17:04.010 --> 00:17:05.210
  • because the Spirit is gentle, and innocent, and pure.
  • 00:17:05.210 --> 00:17:10.200
  • I remember, it was back in 1986
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:12.280
  • that an encyclical was written by Pope John Paul II,
  • 00:17:12.280 --> 00:17:17.010
  • at that time, now, St. John Paul II.
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:20.110
  • He wrote an encyclical called Lord and Giver of Life,
  • 00:17:20.110 --> 00:17:23.120
  • and it was about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:17:23.120 --> 00:17:25.030
  • Now an encyclical is one of the highest teachings
  • 00:17:25.030 --> 00:17:28.170
  • of the Catholic Church, and in this encyclical,
  • 00:17:28.170 --> 00:17:31.140
  • he said some very interesting things.
  • 00:17:31.140 --> 00:17:32.280
  • He said, Faith in the Holy Spirit needs to be reawakened
  • 00:17:32.280 --> 00:17:37.180
  • and deepened in the consciousness of the people of God.
  • 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:41.150
  • And I love that, he's talking about an awakening,
  • 00:17:41.150 --> 00:17:44.030
  • and if you know anything about the 12 Step Program,
  • 00:17:44.030 --> 00:17:46.080
  • I did a series on the 12 Step Program recently,
  • 00:17:46.080 --> 00:17:49.260
  • the reason for the 12 Step Program is to bring people
  • 00:17:49.260 --> 00:17:53.020
  • into sobriety, but most of all, it's so that they'll have
  • 00:17:53.020 --> 00:17:55.150
  • an awakening with God, and that's exactly what we need
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:58.240
  • when it comes to the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:18:00.090
  • a new consciousness, a new awakening with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:05.030
  • You can have that.
  • 00:18:05.030 --> 00:18:06.250
  • No matter how long you've been religious,
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:08.290
  • no matter how long you've been going to church,
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:10.200
  • no matter how long it doesn't seem like things
  • 00:18:10.200 --> 00:18:12.070
  • have been working for you, or possibly, you're just flipping
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:14.200
  • into the program and you don't know Jesus,
  • 00:18:14.200 --> 00:18:17.010
  • and you haven't been going to church,
  • 00:18:17.010 --> 00:18:18.190
  • you can have an awakening with the power,
  • 00:18:18.190 --> 00:18:20.190
  • the grace of God, because God is good all the time,
  • 00:18:20.190 --> 00:18:24.130
  • and all the time, God is good, and He's good to everybody.
  • 00:18:24.130 --> 00:18:28.050
  • And so, Pope John Paul II said that after Vatican II,
  • 00:18:28.050 --> 00:18:33.040
  • we need to have a new study of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:37.130
  • I believe what he was saying is, people don't just need
  • 00:18:37.130 --> 00:18:40.160
  • to study and know theologically about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:18:40.160 --> 00:18:43.250
  • They need to have some type of an encounter,
  • 00:18:43.250 --> 00:18:45.270
  • and this is what revolutionized my life and changed my life
  • 00:18:45.270 --> 00:18:49.050
  • and called me from really, having been fallen away
  • 00:18:49.050 --> 00:18:52.100
  • from the church, to becoming a Catholic priest.
  • 00:18:52.100 --> 00:18:55.220
  • I'm believing that you're gonna have an encounter
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:19:00.090
  • with the Holy Spirit right now.
  • 00:19:00.090 --> 00:19:02.000
  • There is grace being mediated through this program.
  • 00:19:03.160 --> 00:19:05.270
  • God is speaking to you, and God wants to touch your life.
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:09.260
  • It was right after Vatican II, this was back in the '60s,
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:14.270
  • right after the Pope had talked about this,
  • 00:19:14.270 --> 00:19:17.210
  • and that they wanted people to have a new consciousness,
  • 00:19:17.210 --> 00:19:21.130
  • a new awakening with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:19:21.130 --> 00:19:22.270
  • In 1967, Duquesne University, this is in Pittsburgh,
  • 00:19:22.270 --> 00:19:27.070
  • a group of students, young people,
  • 00:19:27.070 --> 00:19:30.210
  • and oftentimes, God will touch young people,
  • 00:19:30.210 --> 00:19:32.270
  • in a powerful way, and older people,
  • 00:19:32.270 --> 00:19:35.050
  • it says that in the last days, your young people
  • 00:19:35.050 --> 00:19:38.130
  • will see visions, and your old people will dream dreams,
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:42.290
  • as God pours out His Spirit, so it's for young and old,
  • 00:19:42.290 --> 00:19:45.240
  • and everybody in between,
  • 00:19:45.240 --> 00:19:47.260
  • but a group of young people were gathered,
  • 00:19:47.260 --> 00:19:49.130
  • and they were on retreat, and nothing was happening,
  • 00:19:49.130 --> 00:19:52.070
  • kind of like that woman that I talked about
  • 00:19:52.070 --> 00:19:53.270
  • with her prayer life and she felt stuck,
  • 00:19:53.270 --> 00:19:56.050
  • so one of the women on retreat, Patti Mansfield Gallagher,
  • 00:19:56.050 --> 00:20:01.040
  • wrote on the chalkboard, We need a miracle,
  • 00:20:02.080 --> 00:20:05.020
  • and then, don't know, that during that retreat,
  • 00:20:05.020 --> 00:20:07.140
  • God lavished His Spirit,
  • 00:20:07.140 --> 00:20:09.090
  • just as He said in the Bible.
  • 00:20:09.090 --> 00:20:11.280
  • It says that upon all flesh, God will pour out His Spirit.
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:16.280
  • John 3, God pours His Spirit out, without limit.
  • 00:20:18.100 --> 00:20:21.220
  • Maybe, in all those children, all those young people
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:26.230
  • were touched in a very powerful way,
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:28.160
  • and began the charismatic renewal in the Catholic Church,
  • 00:20:28.160 --> 00:20:31.070
  • and I'm not trying to say that you have to be charismatic,
  • 00:20:31.070 --> 00:20:34.030
  • I'm not trying to make you a charismatic,
  • 00:20:34.030 --> 00:20:36.010
  • but I believe it's normative for all Christians,
  • 00:20:36.010 --> 00:20:38.070
  • all believers, that you experience the abundance,
  • 00:20:38.070 --> 00:20:43.070
  • the grace, the intimacy that is the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:20:44.130 --> 00:20:47.080
  • that Jesus died for you to have that.
  • 00:20:47.080 --> 00:20:50.130
  • Let me tell you the story about the Samaritan woman,
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:52.250
  • you've heard about this from the Bible,
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:54.090
  • this is John chapter 5, here's this woman of Samaria,
  • 00:20:54.090 --> 00:20:58.090
  • and Jesus is at a well, and He's thirsty,
  • 00:20:58.090 --> 00:21:00.210
  • and this woman is coming to get some water,
  • 00:21:00.210 --> 00:21:02.220
  • and He says, give me to drink, and then,
  • 00:21:02.220 --> 00:21:05.050
  • they get into this dialogue, and Jesus offers her
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:08.220
  • living water, that's another symbol for the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:08.220 --> 00:21:12.100
  • I already talked about the dove.
  • 00:21:12.100 --> 00:21:14.010
  • Living, well, you know what water is,
  • 00:21:14.010 --> 00:21:15.180
  • it brings thirst-quenching life, it brings renewal,
  • 00:21:15.180 --> 00:21:19.200
  • it brings healing, it brings refreshment.
  • 00:21:19.200 --> 00:21:22.200
  • Jesus is saying, if you knew who I am,
  • 00:21:22.200 --> 00:21:24.190
  • and what I'm offering you,
  • 00:21:24.190 --> 00:21:26.040
  • you would ask Him, and He would give you living water.
  • 00:21:26.040 --> 00:21:28.280
  • And notice who He's offering this living water to.
  • 00:21:28.280 --> 00:21:33.000
  • Not just a woman, in that society,
  • 00:21:34.050 --> 00:21:36.020
  • usually, women were lesser than the men.
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:39.080
  • He's offering it to a woman
  • 00:21:39.080 --> 00:21:41.000
  • who had been divorced five times.
  • 00:21:41.000 --> 00:21:44.190
  • The woman is now living with somebody
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:47.020
  • who's not her husband, so in other words,
  • 00:21:47.020 --> 00:21:49.190
  • here's this divorced woman, living in sin,
  • 00:21:49.190 --> 00:21:52.120
  • and Jesus is saying, I'm offering you the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:52.120 --> 00:21:55.010
  • Wow, so what I'm saying is, don't be thinking
  • 00:21:55.010 --> 00:21:58.090
  • that you're not worthy, because if you're hearing
  • 00:21:58.090 --> 00:22:01.090
  • the sound of my voice, Jesus is offering this to you,
  • 00:22:01.090 --> 00:22:04.190
  • whether you're a woman, a man, old, young,
  • 00:22:05.230 --> 00:22:08.090
  • and everything in between.
  • 00:22:08.090 --> 00:22:09.260
  • I remember the story, really quickly, in the Old Testament,
  • 00:22:09.260 --> 00:22:13.010
  • Moses was being burdened with leading the people
  • 00:22:13.010 --> 00:22:17.130
  • out of Egypt, and there were so many people
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:21.100
  • that he needed help, so God told him, gather 70 together,
  • 00:22:21.100 --> 00:22:25.180
  • and I'm gonna take some of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:22:25.180 --> 00:22:27.120
  • that's on you and give it to them, and so,
  • 00:22:27.120 --> 00:22:29.230
  • they're all gathered, and the Spirit's poured out,
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:32.000
  • and they're touched, and they're speaking in tongues.
  • 00:22:32.000 --> 00:22:34.140
  • It was a beautiful, well, two of them weren't there.
  • 00:22:34.140 --> 00:22:37.020
  • Eldad and Medad weren't in the camp,
  • 00:22:38.080 --> 00:22:42.010
  • and they received the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:43.270
  • even though they weren't there, and somebody came in,
  • 00:22:43.270 --> 00:22:46.190
  • and said, hey, Eldad and Medad are speaking in tongues,
  • 00:22:46.190 --> 00:22:50.070
  • and they weren't even a part of the gathering,
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:52.050
  • and Joshua said to Moses, Forbid them to do that,
  • 00:22:52.050 --> 00:22:56.070
  • and Moses replied in a very beautiful way.
  • 00:22:56.070 --> 00:22:58.080
  • He said, I'm not gonna forbid them.
  • 00:22:58.080 --> 00:23:00.280
  • He said, would that God would bestow His people upon,
  • 00:23:00.280 --> 00:23:04.160
  • bestow His Spirit upon all people.
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:07.090
  • So in other words, Moses knew it, Jesus proclaimed it,
  • 00:23:07.090 --> 00:23:12.030
  • that God is good all the time, and all the time,
  • 00:23:12.030 --> 00:23:15.010
  • God is good, and because God is good,
  • 00:23:15.010 --> 00:23:17.010
  • He wants to lavish His Spirit upon you.
  • 00:23:17.010 --> 00:23:20.120
  • So, whether you've been going to church or not,
  • 00:23:20.120 --> 00:23:24.010
  • whether you've been part of the gathering or not,
  • 00:23:24.010 --> 00:23:25.290
  • you can receive the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:23:25.290 --> 00:23:27.120
  • I believe, as you're watching this program right now,
  • 00:23:27.120 --> 00:23:31.190
  • and I'm gonna pray for that to happen.
  • 00:23:31.190 --> 00:23:33.160
  • All you need is faith.
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:35.110
  • Believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and the giver of life.
  • 00:23:36.230 --> 00:23:41.010
  • Jesus died on the cross for you to have abundant life,
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:46.010
  • eternal life, a life that begins right now,
  • 00:23:47.060 --> 00:23:51.030
  • and continues into eternity.
  • 00:23:51.030 --> 00:23:54.020
  • This is what salvation is, knowing who the Holy Spirit is,
  • 00:23:54.020 --> 00:23:57.010
  • and so let me pray that the gentle,
  • 00:23:58.060 --> 00:24:00.100
  • wondrous, loving, gracious Holy Spirit
  • 00:24:01.240 --> 00:24:06.200
  • will fill your empty places, that you will receive,
  • 00:24:08.010 --> 00:24:11.130
  • in the depths of your heart, a revolution, a rebirth,
  • 00:24:11.130 --> 00:24:16.130
  • whether you feel anything or not,
  • 00:24:18.060 --> 00:24:20.210
  • be touched by the Holy Spirit, something new,
  • 00:24:20.210 --> 00:24:25.080
  • a change in you, you're gonna be different,
  • 00:24:26.120 --> 00:24:29.190
  • there's power, there's intimacy, there's grace for you.
  • 00:24:30.280 --> 00:24:35.140
  • I want you to be filled with the grace of God,
  • 00:24:37.090 --> 00:24:40.070
  • because God is good all the time,
  • 00:24:40.070 --> 00:24:42.260
  • and all the time, God is good.
  • 00:24:42.260 --> 00:24:45.260
  • Don't just live, live with passion.
  • 00:24:45.260 --> 00:24:48.030
  • (inspirational music)
  • 00:24:48.030 --> 00:24:51.170
  • I hope you were touched by the grace of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:24:51.170 --> 00:24:55.250
  • I wrote a book called Glorious Holy Spirit,
  • 00:24:55.250 --> 00:24:58.110
