The Spirit has been poured forth and works wonders wherever human hearts are open to its promptings. The earth is renewed each time rivalries are resolved, distinctions are recognized as merely expression of diversity, peace is restored, comfort and solace are offered, and forgiveness is granted. We are immersed in the vigor of the spirit of God; all we have to do is open ourselves to it and the reign of God will be born in our midst.
