And hope does not put us to shame, because the love of God
has been poured into our hearts through the Spirit of God dwelling within us. – Romans 5.5
Pentecost brings to a close the great festival of Easter, reminding us we are sent forth as witnesses of hope, love and the good news entrusted to us. The gift of the Holy Spirit is given to all people and as the text from Romans reminds us the Spirit dwells within us. This has always amazed me – our God that close – dwelling within us, in our every breath. We often pray “Come Holy Spirit” and yet the Spirit is already here. May we become more attuned and attentive to how the Spirit is living and moving in us. It need not be in grandiose moments but rather in the steps forward each day.
Pentecost is the Feast Day for the Franciscans of Canada.
The Holy Spirit is our patron as we continue to preach the gospel in Canada.
We humbly ask for your continued prayers and support.
Mateus Campos Felipe
