CELEBRATING A BEGINNING
We often speak of Pentecost as the beginning of the Church. The Holy Spirit comes upon the disciples, the proclamation of the Good News can now begin and be addressed to all. But every beginning takes root at a specific time. This time for the apostles is when Jesus leaves the world to go to his Father. His mission on earth accomplished, victorious over death, he can let his disciples take over. It is their turn to take the road to share this extraordinary news: Christ has died and is risen and God is closer to his children.
Go out now, share the Gospel, get messy, Pope tells Quebec bishops
VATICAN CITY – Without waiting for some well-researched, detailed plan with action items and measurable goals, Catholics in Quebec must go out and share the Gospel, Pope Francis told the bishops of the province.
Meeting the 29 bishops of Quebec May 11, Pope Francis said, "You've got to go, and it's going to be messy," according to Archbishop Paul-Andre Durocher of Gatineau, former president of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops.
He trusts us
Jesus told his disciples that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The path that leads us to the Father enable us to know Him.
