Pentecost – Unifying Power – Catholic Inspiration

Three Great Things

Fr. Andrew’s Pentecost Homily Podcast

This homily was given at St. William Church in Foxboro, WI on May 23, 2015.

Like a gentle rain that nourishes and renews the earth, the Holy Spirit comes upon the world to bring life.  The power of the Holy Spirit showers graces into our hearts with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control.  This happens in two profound ways:

  • As individuals we are uniquely blessed with our gifts and talents
  • As community we unite and support each other

A simple diagnostic tool:  where do I see unity in my life?  Where unity is present, we can build and grow stronger with the Spirit’s power.  Where it is absent, we have the opportunity to call upon the Spirit for healing and transformation.  Either way, come Holy Spirit!
