The Church's Birthday



    On Pentecost Sunday we celebrate the birthday of the Church. So Happy Birthday to all of us who are Christians and believe in Jesus and try to follow His Way!

    Once in Medjugorje Our Blessed Mother said: “When you have the Holy Spirit, you have Everything!”

    Imagine the reality that the love between God, the Father, and God the Son is so great that THAT IS WHO the Holy Spirit IS!!! The Holy Spirit IS Love and if we share in His Divine Life, if we have Love within us, the Holy Spirit lives in us.

    My message to you is simple this week! Happy Birthday! Let us never drive the Holy Spirit from us by committing deliberate mortal sin.

    Come, Holy Spirit, pour Yourself on us with all of Your gifts. God bless you, dear reader and have a very Happy Birthday on Pentecost!
