May Jesus Christ, the light of the world and Prince of Peace, be with you!
Now that the “unofficial season of summer “has begun” this means people taking vacations, schools closed for the summer; playgrounds and pools are opened, and more outside activities planned. Community living is not that same when we were younger. People enjoyed sitting on their porch, or stoop, and children playing outdoor games. Our present community summer living is displayed in fear, anxiety, and safety. Please, I encourage everyone to make part of your prayer life a petition for safe streets and a peaceful summer. Again I ask you to pause at 12:00 noon, everyday to pray for our families, world, communities, and church. All our prayers lifted up will make a difference.
On a liturgical note, we come to the end of our Easter season. Today we celebrate Pentecost Sunday, the birthday of the church. This is the day the Holy Spirit made his entrance an dwelt upon the apostles. That same Holy Spirit makes his presence within us as well. He leads us to the kingdom of God, while at the same time, fulfilling God’s promise and journeying with us, even in difficult moments. As we celebrate Pentecost Sunday today, may our prayer also include the Prayer to the Spirit:
“Come, Holy Spirit. Come with strength for the weak, courage for the fearful, light for those in darkness, comfort for the sorrowful, healing for the sick and injured, guidance for those who are in doubt, hope for those who have no hope, and love for those who have no love.
Come, Holy Spirit, kindle in us the fire of your love, and we shall renew the face of the earth.”
May we all try our best to renew the face of this earth.
Peace and Blessings, Msgr. Britto
