Fr. Howard Thompson
A little leaven makes the dough rise. This reality in the baking world is also applicable in our spiritual lives. The leaven of malice, anger, greed, desire and other ‘negative’ ingredients will give rise to blighted lives. But the leaven of love, joy, peace, patience and all other ‘positive’ input will make our entire being rise to new heights. Beware the leaven used (Mk. 8:15).
Come Holy Spirit and fill our lives with Your presence. May the fruits that You empower us to bear, be the leaven that makes our lives rise and soar to new spiritual heights. Amen.
