Easter Weekday Tuesday
Perhaps you have heard the story from this past weekend where a man was traveling down M-6, and in the back of his pickup truck, he had a box with $31, 000 dollars in it. All of the money blew out, and he has only been able to recover $7000. The guy gives new meaning to “Blowing in the wind.”
Our Gospel today has a lot about ‘blowing in the wind’ as it begins as yesterdays’ Gospel ends, by repeating verses 7&8. Our opening lines of our Gospel today reads, “You must be born from above. The wind blows where it wills, and you can hear the sound it makes, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes; so it is with everyone who is born in the Spirit.” To have this line repeated the Church in hearing great wisdom must want us to reflect on its meaning.
Perhaps our reflection of the Spirit blowing like the wind and blowing us around brings us to reflect on our first reading from the Book of Acts. The community of followers understand everything as a blessing from God and are living as one heart and one mind, and no one went without.”
Where is the Spirit of God blowing us today? How are we to be humble and to try harder to live in the community with those that God has entrusted to our care? Our Eucharist is offered for our holiness may we be blown where the Spirit moves us?
