May your hearts be filled with the hope of Easter!
I pray that these next 50 days of the Easter Season be days of grace for all of you. On June 4th we will celebrate Pentecost and all these days before the Feast allow us the opportunity to pray, Come Holy Spirit, over and over again.
In these early Easter Days we join the Church in reflecting on Jesus being present among us. Gospel after Gospel presents us with Jesus in the midst of his disciples. The grace that we look forward to in these days is the grace to recognize his presence anew. As Vincentians, we pray for the grace to see him as St. Vincent did in the lives and persons of the poor he ministered to.
The Acts of the Apostles remind us of the effort involved in living as the Christian Community. The task might be challenging but not impossible because Christ is with us and has given us his words and actions to make our very own.
On the Ascension, we hear Christ’s last words again, Love one another. The work of the Church is ours and the call to love is our daily guide.
As we await the coming of the Holy Spirit on June 4th, may we confidently pray that the Spirit’s coming again may make our fractured world whole.
A Happy Easter!
