On Pentecost Sunday, Christians are accustomed to finding birthday wishes all over the internet—in celebration of the Church, of course. And really, who can be blamed? Most people love birthdays. Plus, anything with icing tends to be pretty popular with the kids. #liturgicallivingwin
But, reflecting on the Scripture readings for this celebration, we know there’s much more to the day than cakes and candles.
1 It’s a day for the Holy Spirit to shine.
The Holy Spirit is often considered the forgotten third Person of the Trinity. And it’s true. We pray to the Father and call on Jesus Christ the Son. But outside of liturgy, reciting the Glory Be and the Sign of the Cross is sometimes the only attention we give to the Spirit.
The Trinity—three persons in one God—is a mystery. It’s a belief we hold through the grace of God. While we may not fully understand this, Christ commissions us to engage with our faith. This is “faith seeking understanding,” as St. Anselm would say.
If you are or you would like to become an Extraordinary Eucharistic Minister of Holy Communion during Mass or to make visits to homes—there will be a mandatory training every Wednesday during the month of June at 7:00 pm at Our Lady of Mercy Church. You need only to attend one training session. This training class is for parishioners from Our Lady of Mercy and St. Brigid Parishes.
