This Sunday our Church celebrates Pentecost Sunday which is known as the Birthday of the Church. It is the birthday of the Church because with the sending of the Holy Spirit the role that had been Jesus’ became the role of the disciples and through our Confirmation our role. Because we have received the Gift of the Holy Spirit we are now are ones who are to love the marginalized as Jesus did, to forgive those who have stumbled as Jesus did, and to serve the needy as Jesus did. So on this Pentecost Sunday how would rate ourselves? And more importantly how would Jesus rate our response?
God’s continued peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
