Pentecost Sunday Fr. John Gerth

All of us have been baptized into one and the same Spirit, and live by that same Spirit. That same Spirit, the Advocate, was given as gift to the disciples to remind them of all that Jesus said and did, and to stregthen them to go forth in the name of the Lord, “To renew the face fo the earth”.

HappyBirthday, everybody! That's right, this is our collective birthday as the Catholic Church. It's a day to rejoice in the continual mission that began on that first Pentecost when the Apostles proclaimed the Christian message to people from all over the world who heard them speaking in their own languages. And even though the people who heard the message were from all over, the message itself united them into one people. This was and is the work of the Holy Spirit in the Catholic Church, forming us into One Person, the Body of Christ. Remember the very word "Catholic" means universal. We are all united by the Holy Spirit to make up this Body. All partake of the heart of the Body's existence. Read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.
