Wednesday of the Sixth Week of Easter. Reflection by Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)

Acts 17:15,22-18:1; John 16:12-15

The child in our world today is exposed to so much information. Yes! Sometimes, very wrong information. With social media and mainstream media, news spread like wildfire; bad news even more. So who’s still ignorant? At the time Paul preached to the Athenians, he told them that God overlooked their idolatrous actions when they were still ignorant. They didn’t know the ‘unknown God’ just yet. However, now, it was time to give the truth a chance.

Friends, ignorance is no more an excuse. We cannot simply choose to walk away from the Areopagus as the Athenians did. We cannot continue to worship fellow human beings, our money in the bank, our cars and houses, or even ourselves. It’s time to give all worship to the one true God. We must bend our wills to God’s will by being docile to the promptings of the Holy Spirit deep in our hearts, that we may be led from ignorance to truth. As we wait for the Lord to ascend to heaven, may we never forget to say, “come Holy Spirit, come!”

Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead.

N.B: The Ascension of the Lord has been moved to Sunday 24 May 2020 in the Catholic Diocese of Uromi. Please take note.
