Rose Folsom discovered that being gentle with herself lets her enjoy a slow-but-sure journey of spiritual growth.
In the Octave of Pentecost, the Paschal Mystery we’ve been meditating on has come to fruition at the arrival of the Holy Spirit! Shouldn’t that mean that we’re all holy now and we’re doing things God’s way all the time?
Well, it didn’t happen that way for the Apostles and it’s not that way for us. (The Blessed Mother doesn’t count because she had a bit of an advantage!)
So how do we make progress in the power and light of the Spirit, post-Pentecost? In this 3-minute video, I share my “get real” ways to avoid discouragement, be gentle with ourselves, and experience slow-but-sure growth in the spiritual life.
