Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We recently celebrated Pentecost which marks the birthday of the Church. This is where we are given the POWER, LOVE, and COMPETENCE to create faith in others by the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT.
However, in order to do this, we must avoid reducing the gospel to nothing more than secular humanism. Jesus experienced that temptation in the desert. We know making the Gospel explicit requires sacrifice, and that it is much easier to make it implicit. But the Lord's Name needs to be shared so others can know what to attach their deepest restless and hunger to: Jesus Christ.
The reason I sound like I'm talking to children is because I was. Every Tuesday/Wednesday and Friday we have children from St. Gabriel's join us for daily mass.
Ps 102:2-3, 16-18, 19-21
