Christ is Risen and Ascended!

This Spirit, for He is most wise and most loving, if He takes possession of a shepherd He makes him a Psalmist, subduing evil spirits by his song (1 Sam. 16:23), and proclaims him king; if he was “a herdsman and a gatherer of sycamore fruits” (Am. 7:14), He makes him a Prophet. Call to mind David and Amos. If He possesses a godly youth, He makes him a judge of elders, even beyond his years, as Daniel testifies, who conquered the lions in their den. If He takes possession of fishermen, He makes them catch the whole world in the nets of Christ, taking them up in the meshes of the Word. Look at Peter and Andrew and the Sons of Thunder, thundering the things of the Spirit. If the Spirit takes possession of publicans, He makes use of them for discipleship, and makes them merchants of souls; witness Matthew, yesterday a Publican, today an Evangelist. If He takes possession of zealous persecutors, He changes the current of their zeal and makes them Pauls instead of Sauls, and He makes them full of piety as when found full of wickedness. – St Gregory Nazianzen
