On the ninth day of Easter, our true Love, Jesus (see 1 Jn 4:8, 16), gives us holy boldness, complete assurance, absolute confidence (Acts 4:29; Heb 10:22), "parrhesia," "straightforward simplicity, filial trust, joyous assurance, humble boldness, the certainty of being loved" (Catechism, 2778). When we pray with this assurance and confidence, the place where we pray shakes and we are "filled with the Holy Spirit" (Acts 4:31).
Will you accept the risen Jesus' gift of holy boldness? If you accept this gift, you are committing yourself to use it — to witness for the risen Christ even if you will be persecuted. If you are in love with the risen Christ, that love will impel you (2 Cor 5:14) to speak up for Jesus. Therefore, holy boldness is just what you want and need. But if your love for God, Who is Love, is cold (see Mt 24:12), then you would not want holy boldness from your true Love on this ninth day of Easter.
The risen Jesus is asking us the same question He asked Peter: "Do you love me?" (Jn 21:15, 16, 17) Jesus is breathing on you and commanding you: "Receive the Holy Spirit" (Jn 20:22) of love (see Gal 5:22). Say "yes" to Love. Receive the gift of love. Then you will want the gift of holy boldness.
