Again, Jesus said to them. "Peace be with you......." After saying this, he breathed on them, "receive the Holy Spirit....."(John 20)
There appeared tongues as if of fire which parted and came to rest upon each one of them. All were filled with the Holy Spirit.....
Thus the Church of Christ is born! Today we are celebrating the Pentecost, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOTHER CHURCH !
Today also we celebrate Mother's day. Mary is the Mother of Christ and the Mother of our Church. All of us are filled with the Holy Spirit. Doubt no more, wait no more, search no more, we are the Catholics, we are the Catholic Church, We are the people of the Holy Spirit, people of Charisma- each and every one. Use your gift.... bring the good news to the world!
Mary said to the Angel : "But how can this come about, since I am a virgin?" " The Holy Spirit will upon you'" the Angel answered............"...said Mary "Let what you have said be done to me"........(Luke 1)
To Mother Mary and all the women of the world, like Mary, accepted motherhood with grace and courage, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY !
