God's Love Poured Out

Themes for Discussion: are offered to assist in the process of discovering ‘from the memory of the Church’ what has been accomplished by the Spirit, and to cooperate with the Spirit in helping to make it ‘alive and active in the soul of each individual’.

The Spirit in Scripture:
• The Spirit in the Old Testament
• The Spirit in Luke – Acts
• The Spirit in Paul
• The Spirit in John


The Spirit Active in the Church and in the World:
• The Spirit in the Church
• The Spirit and the Sacraments
• The Spirit and Ecumenism
• The Spirit in the World


The themes are not tied to any particular season, nor to any sequence of scripture passage from the lectionary, so groups or individuals wishing to use them as the basis for study or discussion may do so whenever they choose. Groups accustomed to a Lenten or Easter program will be able to use the Themes at that time.

Prayers and Reflections: These are prayers and reflections to deepen our appreciation of the Holy Spirit’s action in our lives. Ideal for use in personal meditation; group sharing; prayerful reflections; for those involved in the catechumenate; and as a prayer and reflection accompaniment to ‘Themes for Discussion’.

Topics covered are:
Dadirii – our greatest gift
• Fruits of the Spirit
• Discernment of Spirits
• Gifts of the Spirit
• Praying with the Spirit
• Mary and the Spirit
• Spirituality for Today
• Spirituality for Today – another view

This book would be a great resource for readers, especially for Year B. It provides a wonderful overview of the origin, structure, literary style and themes of the Gospel.
