Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for May 31, 2020.
Description: “Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.” This is our prayer on Pentecost Sunday. It’s the reason the Church can exist and continues to exist. We live in the age of the Holy Spirit. Without the power and presence of the Spirit of Christ, Christianity would have been unable to sustain itself during two millennia of persecutions, scandals, and obstacles. Without the Spirit of Christ, we Christians would be unable to be Christ in today’s world. We’d be unable to do what the Father asks of us.
How does God “renew the face of the earth”? Through us! First, God the Father gave his Holy Spirit to Jesus the Son so that he could successfully fulfill his mission on earth. Jesus then gave his Holy Spirit to us, so that we can grow in holiness and to continue the work of renewal that he began.
