Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings and Spiritual Practice: May 24, 2015

PentecostThis is the Feast of Pentecost, the last Sunday of the Easter Season. The Spirit is given not just to us individually, but to the community of believers. God's Spirit, like God's love, is missionary and relational, and enables us to live with one another in love, with gifts given for the benefit of all. Are we opening our hearts and minds to the Spirit of Truth? How are we called to help bury the dead and support those grieving the loss of a loved one?

The readings:

  • Acts 2: 1-11. All heard the same message in different languages. One faith in many cultural expressions. God's Spirit, like God's love, is missionary; it impels us beyond ourselves and our own concerns.

Reflections on the Sunday’s Readings and Spiritual Practice: May 17, 2015

AscensionToday is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord. It is certainly a celebration. What a glorious final chapter to the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ! Can you imagine watching a dear friend suddenly disappear? I wonder what the apostles felt? Clearly they did not yet understand. Moments before Jesus’ ascension they asked the Lord if he was then going to “restore the kingdom of Israel”. What about us? We who have the benefit of 2,000+ years of hindsight, what do we understand?

Jesus’ ascension is a vote of confidence in us. It is our turn to live in the world and fulfill his mission.

We have only to read today’s Gospel to learn what is asked of us. We are to proclaim the gospel to everyone. That’s it. That’s all. Simple. The message to us is often not an easy one, but it is a simple one. We are to evangelize all we meet. How? By our lives. Our actions.
