“I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with POWER from on high.” Luke 24:49

This coming Sunday, we will gather for the final Sunday of the Easter Season, the celebration of Pentecost Sunday. Fifty days after Easter, the Apostles received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the POWER of God’s love to proclaim Jesus Christ to all nations. We too have received this POWER first at our baptism and then again sealed into us on the day of our Confirmation. This POWER is the POWER of God’s love that makes all things new. As we prepare to gather for Pentecost Sunday, may we pray for a fresh outpouring of the POWER of God’s love so that we as new creations in the Lord, may renew this world in His love and mercy.
