Pentecostes...




Sem o Espírito Santo,
Deus fica longe;

Cristo permanece no passado;

o Evangelho permanece letra morta;

a Igreja é uma simples organização;

a autoridade é um poder;

a missão é propaganda;

o culto, uma velharia;

e o agir moral, um agir de escravos.



Mas, no Espírito,

o cosmos é enobrecido pela geração do Reino;

Cristo ressuscitado torna-se presente;

o Evangelho faz-se poder e vida;

a Igreja realiza a comunhão trinitária;

a autoridade transforma-se em serviço;

a liturgia é memorial e antecipação;

o agir humano é deificado.

Atenágoras

Paulo,

Obrigado por esta oração, e pela sua partilha, fizeram me ambas tão bem!

Um grande beijinho e que o Espirito Santo o acompanhe e lhe dê força

João Delicado, sj disse...

Que oração mais bombástica. É mesmo isso!
Sem o Espírito tudo seca.
Com o Espírito tudo transborda.
É por isso que, mesmo as coisas mais "santas", podem ser apenas práticas exteriores. Ou podem transformar-se em contacto com o próprio Deus.
Que o Senhor no-lo envie então.

Obrigada! "sem o Espírito Deus fica longe". E haverá coisa pior do que a ilusão de que Deus não está connosco? Casei no Pentecostes e a minha filha mais velha nasceu no Pentecostes. Nestas coisas do céu não há coincidência e é consoladora a ideia de que as "nossas datas" são datas do espírito! Obrigada por esta oração, obrigada pelos textos deste blog.
