PENTECOST

The Spirit: the powerful and enabling love of God.

Today we celebrate the Spirit – the great love that binds the Father to the Son and now binds us to God and to one another. It is a love that transcends words but embraces the heart and soul of each one of us; it gives voice to the things we believe but are too afraid to speak; it gives us courage and grace to work for the dreams we are sometimes too cynical or fearful to hope for. The Spirit of God enables us to re-create our world in the love of the God who loved us enough to become one of us, to die for us and to rise for us. The theologian and scientist Teilhard de Chardin noted that “love is the only force that can make things one without destroying them…Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”

The Spirit: the ‘birth’ of the Church.

Pentecost is a moment of profound realization and transformation for the community of disciples. The faith they had received, the wonders they had witnessed and the Word they had heard came together in a new understanding, clarity, unity and courage to begin the work Jesus had entrusted to them. In Jesus’ “breathing” upon them the new life of the Spirit, the community of the Resurrection – the Church – takes flight. That same Spirit continues to “blow” through today’s Church to give life and direction to our mission and ministry to preach the Gospel to every nation, to proclaim the forgiveness and reconciliation in God’s name, to baptize all humanity into the life of Jesus’ Resurrection.
