Happy Birthday to Us...the Church!

Happy Birthday!!!! Happy Pentecost!!!!  This is the celebration in which we remember that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit into the hearts and minds of the Apostles so that they might begin to “build and grow” the Church.  Jesus saw them and all of his people as “gift of person.” He wanted to empower people with his love and life.  In our day and time, we, as Church possess this very same gift…. The Holy Spirit.  When we receive a gift from someone, they give us the gift out of love and, out of that love, feel that we need it. We try to use the gift as much as we can.  We receive the gift of the Holy Spirit because Jesus gives it to us out of love and he knows that we need it.  How can we use this gift of the Holy Spirit????  You will be invited today at Mass to answer this question for yourself.
