Year in Faith:
invites us to consider the movement of the Spirit in our lives as well: in Baptism
and Confirmationwe have welcomed the Spirit, who continues
to vivify the Christian life, thus enabling us to proclaim the Good News today.Reflection:
Please pray for the St Luke Youth who welcomedthe Holy Spirit when they were Confirmed thisweekend. (Sourcebook 2013)
NotesAs the 50 days of celebrating
Christ’s Resurrection comes to a close today, another new beginning bursts forth powerfully into our lives: the coming
of the Holy Spirit. Pentecost recalls and makes present in our lives the advent of the spirit, which empowered the followers
of Christ to proclaim the Gospel message.(Sourcebook 2013)
