June 8th, 2014-Pentecost Sunday

Happy Sunday!

Today is the day we celebrate when Christ went thru the locked doors in the upper room where the apostles were out of fear.  Peace! Was his message to the frightened followers. Peace!  And the gift of the Holy Spirit was given enabling them to go forth to the nations!  We may ask what may keep us from moving forth? 

Try moving your seat in church and you may meet some new people!  Move out from the comfort and trust in God's providence.  When doing so one week a young couple with their newborn were close by.  What a gift to any parish!  When asked if they would join us for coffee they declined as a 'changing space' was needed for the baby.  Fortunately they had made it to mass!  It is a question to linger on...what may keep some from coming, or staying in our faith communities?

This Penecost Sunday, an insightful read by JPII is Gift and Mystery-On the fiftieth anniversary of my priestly ordination.

A page turner and a one sit read he delves into with jewel like clarity the movement of God in his life leading up to and past his call to the priesthood.  He notes the Marian threads in his life. It will pose a new look 'on floors' as his face down on one  upon which other's trod on the way to Christ.  His years of formation during occupation during WWII are a chasim of deep water running to life coursing in his veins circulating to the priesthood.  How many sacrifices have gone before us for our faith?

So this Pentecost what fear may delay our response to the Spirit's prompting? ?  Move outward with the spirit toward the floor of commitment leading us to union.  Is there anyone this Sunday we could call to bring Good News?

I do appreciate your way of evangelization in this year of Faith. On the day of Lord, let us do those that foster our relation with him: mass, scripture reading

Studying in Jerusalem several years ago, I was very moved by the power the Sabbath has to reclaim and rejuvenate lives of believers, a time for complete rest.

Sunday is the day of the Lord. Let us come to Him as a family specially on this day to celebrate him and share the joy with others present in the church

Sunday is the most precious day of the week, time for reflection, Mass, family, and often religious studies, reflection, writing and ministry.
