Our Voyage to Heaven

2nd Sunday after Pentecost 2015
Today, St. John instructs us on how to live the Christian life, and how this life of grace and love demands good works.  The whole first half of the liturgical year is summed up in the feast of the Holy Trinity.  Now the Father and the Son have sent the Holy Spirit to draw us towards Heaven.  The three Theological Virtues and the four Moral Virtues are like the oars of our ship which we actively use to help us reach our celestial destination; but the seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost, like the sails of our ship, operate more passively when we are open to His inspirations.  Although we have all the benefits, we must be vigilant, because our lives are still fraught with dangers.
