Pentecost Sunday-June 4, 2017


Happy Sunday!

Come Holy Spirit!  One spirit and many gifts.  At a recent Ordination to the priesthood there was a tangible witness of the Holy Spirit.  In the gathering every person had a 'story' of how they knew 'their new priest.'  Spiritual Fatherhood is quite real.  It transcends the nursery and cares for the soul at every stage of life independent of country, language, ability, sin, education or means.  Listening to the stories of 'their new priest' some even added, well they knew him 'even before' college, first job, diaconate assignment, summer placement etc.. The faithful have a bond or holy attachment to their priests.  It is extended as well to their deep care of those contemplating a vocation.    The Reception lines were so large groups had to be recommended to move along the numbers of faithful.  A single man ordained as the priest has countless numbers of children of all walks and stories.  The parents and siblings of the newly ordained ( and those long ordained) make such a generous gift to the church in their son/brother/nephew.  God's people waited and waited to connect with the groom of the Church as if to touch but the tassel on his priestly garment, a merciful heart formed on the kenotic self emptying of our risen Lord.  This  Pentecost will you join in praying thanksgiving for the newly ordained, those lifetime  priests,  those yearning for a faith undeterred and those just learning the sign of the cross who may one day hear the Lord's call? offer prayers for an increase in priestly vocations!

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.
