Parish Message

PENTECOST – COME HOLY SPIRIT!

We celebrate this weekend the great feast of Pentecost - the final step of our Eastertide journey. We hear how the disciples were transformed from a fragile, fear-filled community locked up in the Upper Room to a bold and fearless group of missionaries who burst out into the streets of Jerusalem to proclaim the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. On that Pentecost day they began a revolution of love which would spread like purifying fire across the face of the earth.

This is the power of the Holy Spirit - the life-giving breath of the Church which brought her into existence and sustains her day by day. Indeed it has been said that without the Spirit the Church would be a corpse! In the same way our spiritual life cannot survive and flourish without the Holy Spirit. Every Christian journey begins with the gift of the Holy Spirit at baptism, which is later strengthened by the Sacrament of Confirmation – a gift which should grow ever stronger in us. And so we should always pray for a renewal of the Holy Spirit within us – so that we and our whole world may be transformed by the power of God’s love.

The disciples’ mission is also our mission – to reveal the merciful face of God, the compassionate, forgiving God who wants to liberate us from sin and give life, eternal life to all who accept him. The Spirit transforms and inspires us to love as Jesus loves. There is a life-changing power in this love. Come Holy Spirit – fall afresh on us!

In a special way, we pray for our 13 Confirmation candidates who are to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this Friday evening. It is especially challenging for teenagers in our very secular society to witness openly to their Christian faith – these fine young parishioners need our prayers & encouragement. And we need their fresh faith and desire to serve the parish and Christ. Come Holy Spirit! Renew us all!

With prayers - Fr Richard, Fr Ephrem, Deacon Robert and all the parish team
