Newness, harmony, mission...
The Holy Spirit brings harmony into lives. Pope Francis speaks of the Spirit as being linked to three words: newness, harmony, and mission. Whenever God reveals Himself, He brings newness and wants our complete trust. Our God is a God of surprises and we need to let ourselves be surprised by God. The Holy Spirit also gives us the courage to strike our along new paths that God sets before us.
The Holy Spirit also brings about harmony and "having a sense of the Church is something fundamental for each Christian, every community, every movement. It is the Church that brings Christ to me, and me to Christ". (Pope Francis' homily, Pentecost, 2013).
The Holy Spirit also invites us, even impels us, to go forth to proclaim the Good News of the Gospel. The Holy Spirit is given to us to go out and spread the joy of the Gospel. We are to give God's love to all and the Spirit helps us with His gifts and fruits.
