born of the Spirit

“Do not be amazed that I told you, ‘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 of the Spirit.” (JN 3: 7-8)

Who “is born of the Spirit” recognizes “the wind,” recognize where to go, or – as we have right now – why to stay and what to do instead. We had plans; we had scheduled activities. Our Lord doesn’t want our stagnation, leaving in “a pause.” Rather, He wants us to put all our energy into following “the Spirit”: “the wind blows where it wills.” Our role is to recognize where and what and … how fast we need to do it. 🙂

“If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
