0001♪ [ music ] ♪ ♪ welcome back to mosaic, my name is chris likert, i'm here with richard lane. lay catholic evangelist. we're talking about how to know that god is speaking to you. many contact licks have received the sackments of confirmations. the spiritual bomb of having fruit in your life. when we receive the sacrament of confirmation that's the holy spirit being poured over us. many people forget to open that up n. the catholic church since 196, there's been the charismatic renewal which is the outpouring, the baptism of the holy spirit, talk a little bit about what that really means and how people can open that up.
5:24 am
>> it is a big topic. >> exactly. and that's exact willly where i was going it started 2000 years ago with this 120 catholic saints, locked in an upper room, and the holy spirit came down, dekrended upon them and gave them the fire to run out and start proclaiming the gospel. they were speaking in tongues they were prof sighing laying on hands and heal heing and somehow, chris we lost that way. in 2000 years. i don't know why. >> so when we go to confirmation, what we really should be seeing in our 8th graders and sophomores in high school, we should not be surprised, in other words. >> well, it goes back to -- it goes back to katakesis. we have to do a better job with our young people so they understand and that they have an encounter with the holy spirit. >> this is not an emotional
5:25 am
psychological thing. this is actually meeting jesus. >> exactly. and many people, catholics, have never had that themselves. and that's why a lot of churches have the ministries outside of the tradition, christ renews the parish and other 8 other ways to be able to come into contact with the holy spirit. >> a simple way is to simply and, holy spirit come into my heart. we're going to do that in a second. but you reminded me, pope francis is talking about this encounter, encounter jesus christ. when you encounter him, you can't help but talk to people. before we close i want to have you say just a little word about your ministry, and how important it is that you have to raise your own finances, and folks pray for this man because he's got a family. and it's not like it's taken care of once you say yes. in fact, it might be a little
