Today’s Reflection May 30

John’s Gospel tells us that after the Resurrection, the Lord went to his disciples, breathed upon them and said, Receive the Holy Spirit….We can say, therefore, that the Holy Spirit is the breath of Jesus Christ and we in a certain sense, must ask Christ to breathe on us always. . . This means that we must keep close to Christ. We do so by meditating on his Word. We know that the principal author of the Sacred Scriptures is the Holy Spirit . . . and then, naturally, this listening, walking in the environment of the Word, must be transformed into a response – a response in prayer, in contact with Christ.

– Pope Benedict XVI
