Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Pentecost Sunday

Today is the feast of Pentecost, the birthday of the
Church. Jesus had spent His life here on earth to establish the
Church and to teach the Apostles who, in turn, would hand on
His teachings to others for all times. Just as the story of the
creation of Adam depicts God breathing “into his nostrils the
breath of life, and so man became a living being,” so the Father
gave the breath of the Holy Spirit through Jesus and, then, the
Holy Spirit gave breath and life to the Church.
The Holy Spirit continues to guide and direct the
Church, which is all of us. The giving of the Holy Spirit
transformed the lives of the early disciples. That same Holy
Spirit has been given as a gift from the Father to us to transform
us also. “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and
enkindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your spirit
and we shall be created and you shall renew the face of the
used with permission - Msgr. Bob Lawrence
