Peace Be With You!
As the Church heads into the summer months we carry with us a wonderfully renewed Church by virtue of Pentecost. I am guessing none of us truly comprehend just how amazing and grace-filled time we live in with this renewal. He (the Holy Spirit) is so very critical to our ongoing conversion, discipleship and evangelization efforts that all these would be impossible with Him!
Consider both the individual (that is each of us) and the collective Church (all of us) being powered by His grace. Such a gift from the Father and the Son it is hard to comprehend. In receiving this gift the whole of civilization is invited to be animated by His love. Indeed, I think of the Holy Spirit as being, in a sense, the fulfilled incarnation of Christ himself-as we are His body-physically and spiritually here on earth, called to continue His mission.
May this summer season be a time of powerful grace in your life as you continue to be renewed by the Spirit into His image.
Your Brother In Christ,
