A Life in
the Spirit Seminar establishes or deepens a person’s relationship with Jesus Christ; and leads the
participant to experience an awakening of
the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit bestowed at Baptism and Confirmation.
Most of us
have heard about the Holy Spirit and most of us have learned
about the Holy Spirit, but many times that is as far as our experience
has gone. The Holy Spirit is a
real person, a part of the Blessed Trinity just like Jesus and the Father. We receive the Holy Spirit through the
Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. Through what is called the baptism in the Holy Spirit, a personal
conversion experience, the power that the Holy Spirit is released within us.
illustration that helps some people understand this concept is through the
image of a candle. It is designed
with a wick that, when lit, creates or releases its light, so to speak; only
at that time does the candle completely fulfill the purpose for which it was
created. Until then, it may be
pleasant to look at, but it does not fulfill its purpose of emanating light. The candle’s ability to be a source of
light is always within it due to its design and the way it is made, but until
something happens to “empower” that candle, until the wick is lit, it lies "dormant,”
it does not fully become what it was designed to be. So it is with all of us. We have been designed by God and empowered with the power of
the Holy Spirit. But until that power
it lays dormant as does the light of the candle. A Life-in-the-Spirit
Seminar is designed to help us yield to the action, empowerment and the
power of the Holy Spirit in our own lives just as He empowered the early church
on the day of Pentecost.
Many who have
attended a Life-in-the-Spirit Seminar
have experienced God and the Holy Spirit in a way they had never done before. It is not unusual for people to fall
more deeply in love with the Eucharist, with Jesus Christ and the Trinity, with
the Mass, and with the Bible.
If you are at least open
to the possibility that you can deepen your personal relationship with the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, why not attend a Life-in-the-Spirit Seminar? It may change your life!! It has for millions and millions of Catholics, who are living
a holier, Spirit-filled, Spirit-empowered life today.
We hope you can deepen your personal relationship with the Holy Spirit.
He is calling you!
