One Spirit – One Source of All


Someone once said that the law of gravity and the law of love ultimately have the same source and are both driven by the same spirit, the Holy Spirit.


Pentecostés

ONE SPIRIT – ONE SOURCE OF ALL

Would that we realized the truth of that! If we recognized how the Holy Spirit is present in everything – physical creation, love, human creativity, and morality – perhaps we could hold more things together in a fruitful tension rather than so often opposing them and having the different gifts of the Holy Spirit fight each other within our lives.

Scripture tells us that the Holy Spirit is both a physical and a spiritual force, the source of all creativity and all morality all at the same time.

We first meet the person of the Holy Spirit in the opening line of the bible: “In the beginning there was a formless void and the Spirit of God hovered over the waters”.

In the early chapters of the scripture, the Holy Spirit is presented as a physical force, a wind that comes from the very mouth of God and not only shapes and orders physical creation but is in fact the energy the lies at the base of everything, animate and inanimate alike: “Take away our breath, and everything returns to dust.”

The ancients believed that there was a soul in everything and that soul, which was God’s breath, held everything together and gave it meaning. They also understood that this same breath that animates and orders physical creation is also the source of all wisdom, harmony, peace, creativity, morality, and fidelity.

God’s breath was understood to be as moral as it is physical, as harmonious as it is creative, and as wise as it is fertile. For them, the breath of God was one force and it did not contradict itself. The physical and the spiritual world were not set against each other. One spirit was understood to be the source of both.

We need to understand things in that same way. We need to let the Holy Spirit, in all his and her fullness, animate our lives.

San Daniele Comboni (1831-1881)

COMBONIANUM

Combonianum è stata una pubblicazione interna nata tra gli studenti comboniani nel 1935. Ho voluto far rivivere questo titolo, ricco di storia e di patrimonio carismatico.
Sono un comboniano affetto da Sla. Ho aperto e continuo a curare questo blog (tramite il puntatore oculare), animato dal desiderio di rimanere in contatto con la vita del mondo e della Chiesa, e di proseguire così il mio piccolo servizio alla missione.
