Dear Friends of St. Luke's,
"Send forth your spirit, they are created and you renew the face of the earth." ~ Psalm 104:30
This past Sunday was Pentecost Sunday, I am sure you found comfort in the words that the Risen Lord spoke to his apostles: "Do not be afraid".
Jesus' disciples were gathered in an upper room to pray. The Resurrection had been a great sign, but they didn't know what God was asking of them now. How would they carry the message of Christ's salvation to the world beyond their own? This is what Jesus told them: "the Holy Spirit that the Father will send in my name—will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have told you." (John 14:26)
On that first Pentecost Sunday— the birth in nature and identity of our Church as missionary —the Holy Spirit came in the form of fire to strengthen Jesus' disciples in their faith. And now we celebrate this great feast as our own.
Partners-in-education, rejoice with me and live your faith as the apostles did. The Holy Spirit filled them with God's love and they evangelized the world. We can do the same today. Through Baptism, the Holy Spirit anoints us all as missioners to spread the word! We are one body, one Church, proclaiming the gift of salvation.
My prayer is that by serving one another— our faith will grow. God be with you and all and know we here at St. Luke’s keeps you in our prayers. Go and share your faith!
God bless you always!
