This is the Great Feast of Pentecost! This is the birthday of the Church! The Holy Spirit descended upon those gathered in the upper room, and they were sent forth to preach the “Good News,” the Gospel, that Jesus had suffered for our sins and was risen from the dead! This message was to be preached to all the world, and now we are still a part of this great mission. As faithful believers, we spread the love of Jesus Christ in every way we can. May this Pentecost weekend be a time of spiritual growth and renewal for all of us!
Pentecost reminds us of the power of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives. When we need help, inspiration or advice, a quick prayer to the Holy Spirit can help us in so many ways!
“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, inspire within them the wisdom of your love!”
And let us continue to pray for one another.
