Dear Folks,

A Blessed Pentecost Sunday to you!

Let me think out loud here about the meaning of this Feast. Sometimes folks say, ‘where is that in the bible?’ Or take great consolation and certitude that something is written in the bible, and thus it is true. In our hearts, we are consoled to know that there is a firmness to this teaching, as we can trace its roots to the Word of God written in the bible.

It is not about The Book…. It is about the person whose speaking was written down in The Book.

And when Jesus ascended, He didn’t say, ‘gather in prayer and I will send you a book.’ He promised to send His Spirit. He promised to send a PERSON! He did that in power and might on Pentecost Sunday, and He does it in millions of ways every day.

I treasure the gift of Faith received from my parents. They taught me to perceive the work of the Holy Spirit. They did this by proclaiming His great works in their lives, and challenging me to look closely for His works in mine! There is no random coincidence in the symphony of grace. Every work, every prayer, every act of faith, hope and love is a note forming a harmonious whole! From Baptism to the grave, He never ceases to find ways to love us.

I have so much to be thankful for where the Lord is giving us all His Spirit! In the joy filled celebration of my 25th Anniversary. In the enthusiasm of the ministry of “Fr. Crush-It.” In the ordination this weekend of Fr. Renner and the baptisms taking place here at the same time! In a funeral Mass offered this morning for a daily communicant. In every one of these graces God is giving us Himself!

I treasure these graces, and pledge to rejoice and say forever, “Thanks be to God!”

pax et bonum,

Father Mosimann
