This Sunday’s gospel is incredible. It is Jesus Christ who is absolutely getting after it, saying to us that He has come to set the world on fire and how He wishes it was already blazing. I think a lot of the times we are not set on fire, or we forget that we have been given His love and given His Holy Spirit, that we walk around like zombies, and yet, we are called to be saints. Pope Benedict XVI said that the greatest way of evangelizing is through the saints, because in the midst of a saint, we’re absolutely attracted to Christ, and to be on fire, to be blazing, is to have the Holy Spirit that is so attractive that your friends, your family, they can look at you and they can say wow! They have something that I don’t have and I want that. And that is Jesus Christ.
This Sunday, ask for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit that you can be the saints that you’re called to be, that you can set on fire, your friends and your family. Please set them on fire not literally, but with the Holy Spirit.
