Wow, what a small world Jean. I remember Grey’s hospital well. The one in Commercial Road closed a number of years ago and the new one is in Chase Valley. Take care and God Bless 🙏

Thank you Bruce for your guidance.The Holy Spirit series has helped me immensely.
My husband has gone to jail for 6 years I am left on my own after 42 years of marriage. My children are struggling, I have no money left and am living week to week, but I have God within me, the Holy Spirit giving me strength,and am confident
some days more than others, that my life is good. I cannot commit to a regular contribution but will when I can.
Thank you, Therese.

Thank you Bruce for pointing out in this first message concerning the FRUIT of the Holy Spirit being singular not plural! I now never see these attributes that are missing in my life as me having to work on acquiring them on my own. BEEN THERE DONE THAT! I can’t tell you how many times I failed!!! But I did believe that it was a joint effort. With me being willing to ask for these missing attributes to the Holy Spirit. Then making space for them by eliminating their counterparts; attributes that come from the flesh, the world or even… Read more »

Bruce I would like to further add concerning the fruit of the Holy Spirit. That there are times when I have been slow to ask the Holy Spirit to respond in a situation with His attribute. It is when I look back, I realise that the outcome of the situation would have been far better for me, if I did ask the Holy Spirit! Is it only me? Or does this happen to others?….

Bruce, you are correct, right on the button – the gift, this one gift of many parts is given that we will grow in each of the parts to be like Christ. The Holy Spirit will help us to be strong in each so that we will be perfect as Christ is perfect – fantastic. We are not static we continue to grow and grow and life will be better and better.

Hillarious! loved the fruit of the Spirit hat you had Bruce. You know what’s going to happen right? I am now going to associate this passage to ‘Bruce & the hat of fruits’

The reflection is beautiful.

Bruce,

I have enjoyed your series and feel I have a deeper relationship with the Lord. I started with your Lenten series and I’m still watching daily. I am so grateful you felt the calling to do this, you have impacted my faith in such a strong and positive way.

God Bless you and Rosemary

Hello Bruce,
My mum and I listen to your talks every day from the UK and they really enrich our spiritual life. Even though we are cradle Catholics, we still have so much to learn, the talks are both uplifting and educational. God bless you and all the team, you are an inspiration and a great ambassador for Christ!
