This weekend the Church Universal celebrates the Solemnity of Pentecost – the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon those who were gathered in the Upper Room.
This weekend our parish celebrates all of our graduates – from little ones on up to graduate students and everyone in between. May that Holy Spirit that came upon those individuals so long ago descend upon and reside within all of our graduates as they have completed one phase in their life and now move forward into another phase of life.
This weekend the Church also celebrates the conclusion of the holy Season of Easter. Fifty days ago we celebrated the Lord’s Resurrection and have continued to celebrate it up through this weekend. Tomorrow – Monday – the church will begin Ordinary Time. This will last until the end of November and we enter into the Season of Advent. Let us pray that this Ordinary Time may be and extraordinary time of spiritual growth for all of us.
