In an ever-changing world, Jesus is the answer to the longing of our hearts for meaning, fulfillment, security and LOVE. Join hundreds of teens to experience the peace of Jesus Christ, who is our REGUGE! "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

From the Pastor: May 28, 2023; Pentecost

Today we celebrate both the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the Church.  The gifts of knowledge and wisdom infused by the Holy Spirit served as the ink that connected all the dots Jesus had left the disciples, but which they were previously unable to connect.  Now they understood His Bread of Life Discourse of John 6 and the meaning of the Last Supper.  The Church was off and running!

Jesus uses many analogies to illustrate the Holy Spirit: fire, water, and wind.  We will hear all three of them being used in our readings this weekend.  But I’d like to focus on the analogy of water here. 

Water is necessary for all living things, every plant and animal.  Without it, life ceases and the earth itself becomes a vast dust bowl; a cruel desert.  Likewise for us, without God.

Jesus promises the woman at the well a living water that will “become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (Jn 4:14).  God illustrates and prefigures the Holy Spirit to Ezekiel as water flowing out of the temple from which all life is sustained (Ez 47:1-12).

I find it a most illustrious analogy.  Just as rain falls down in one unchanging form, the results it produces are entirely different as it is assimilated by the different life forms it sustains.  To a pecan tree, it produces pecans.  To others, grapes, cucumbers, bananas, etc.  Likewise, it adapts to different people to produce different fruits.  To one the gift of interpreting scripture, to another prophecy, another receives the gift of healing.  Some flourish in compassion, others are strengthened to endure great trials; some develop a missionary spirit, and others develop the will to embrace martyrdom.

We have to acknowledge a special gift of wisdom, knowledge, and discernment promised by Christ himself to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church at the Last Supper:

“I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.  When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth…” John 16:12–13

Let us never forget, that special gift: the ability to define the morality of all life choices and especially towards the issues that didn’t exist in the first century was promised to them and not each of us as individuals.  May we have the humility and wisdom to live by the Church’s teachings.

Happy Birthday!

In the area of communications too, we need a Church capable of bringing warmth and of stirring hearts" -Pope Francis
