Leaping for joy
January 23 2022 III Sunday in O.T.

Dear brothers and sisters, Jesus, in the passage from the Gospel of Luke that we’re going to listen to on Sunday January 23, helps us to understand those mysterious words of the Creed that we pronounce when we profess: “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life ... . ". It is the Holy Spirit, in fact, poured out into our hearts by the merits of Jesus, who transforms the "letter that kills" into the Word that gives Life. (Jn 6: 60-69; 2 Cor 3, 4-6)
It is the Holy Spirit who, with the fire of his Love, frees men from the prison of their own selfishness, making them leaping for joy ... It is He who melting the cold of indifference can establish a universal brotherhood into the world ... It is He who breaking the vicious circle of boredom and monotony is able to transform everyday life into a wonderful adventure… At His creative "breath" everything comes back to life and even the saddest and darkest moments of existence, enlightened by his Presence, open to the hope of final victory in Christ.
