I think I may have misspoke during our podcast saying that I had attended four of the Baptism of the Spirit seminars. What I really attended was the Life In the Spirit seminars. Every year when I go to Franciscan University for the summer conference and retreat for priests, deacons and seminarians — one of the tracks they offer is the Life in the Spirit. At any rate, I’m convinced that Jesus has asked the Holy Spirit to anoint me with a growing appreciation for Scripture. This new love for God’s holy Word manifests itself in fresh insights into Scripture, a desire to spend more time with Scripture and a desire to share my enthusiasm with others. I truly believe God will similarly gift any who approach Him with a hungry heart.

During the podcast, Tom mentioned a book by Dr. Mary Healy entitled THE GOSPEL OF MARK, a Book of Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture. Its published by Baker Academic and it would be an ideal book for someone wanting to respond to Gods call for a new love of Catholic Vitamin G — the Gospels.
