The fruit of this mystery is Openness to the Holy Spirit.
This is the first of the Luminous mysteries and reminds us about the Holy Spirit. All to often we forget that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit for us. Sure we are reminded about this at Pentecost but we should always be reminded that the Spirit is here and in our lives. We are in the age of the Spirit and should be willing for the Spirit to help direct all of our decisions, like the cardinals do at a Papal Concave. I hope that in the new year we can all be willing to share our lives with the Holy Spirit. At our Baptism and Confirmation we are anointed with the Holy Chrism which is a physical sign of the Spirit in our lives. Let’s recall the gifts and fruits of the Spirit as well and try to live these in the world. This weekend there will be some more about the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
