Happy Birthday! Today, Pentecost, we celebrate the birth of the Church. You may ask why today marks the beginning of the Church? What about Good Friday? Easter Sunday? Certainly from the cross or the tomb the Church was born? But the Church is not fully the Church until it receives the fullness of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. It is the Holy Spirit who gives life and energy to the Mission of the Church. To be honest, without the Spirit of Jesus in our lives and in our Church, we can do nothing. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we can proclaim the Good News; heal the sick; forgive sins. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that the Church… and each of us as Christians…that we “live and move and have our being”. One of the greatest prayers of the Church is also one of its most simple: COME HOLY SPIRIT! In many ways, those three simple words says it all!
