In celebrating Pentecost, Pope Francis reminds us that, the Spirit "rests on each and then brings all of them together in fellowship. To each (the Spirit) gives a gift, and then gathers them all into unity. In other words, the same Spirit creates diversity and unity, and in this way forms a new, diverse and unified people: the universal Church."
In a time when our country is so often defined by division, the Spirit instills in us unity in diversity, where all are neighbor, where all are loved by God and so also, by us. During our series on peacemaking last month, Fr. Ray and I came across a prayer from Daniel Berrigan, SJ that invites us to pray for those who await our love. Who awaits our love today? The Gospels teach us that we must spend our whole lives asking and answering this question.
As we enter into the 50th Anniversary Year of the Summer of Love, commit to asking, Who awaits our love today and spend time nurturing your relationship with God and our community. Join us at the Ignatian Spiritual Life Center for a Summer Film Series and Meditation & Wellness Workshops.
