Blessing to all on this feast of Pentecost 🕊

A blessed and holy Pentecost.

The Spirit Christians receive is not a one-time inspiration but a permanent indwelling of the Father’s presence. The divine intimacy that Jesus shared was now open to every Christian. “Everything the Father has is mine,” Jesus tells his disciples, and they will know how to continue the Son’s mission because the Spirit “will take from what is mine and declare it to you” (Jn 16:15).

This guidance continues today. God’s Spirit flows through every heart; and at times, God stirs the Spirit in each person to advance the mission of the Son. These moments are exhilarating and disorienting; in them many feel a desire to live differently and finally discover themselves.

We see it alive here everyday!

Jesus is sending you too, just as the Father sent him. He is breathing his Spirit into you, just as he did for his disciples. Embrace your mission today on this great feast of Pentecost. Embrace the Holy Spirit.

Sharing the Felician Haiti Mission in Western Pennsylvania

On Friday, May 4, at the Felician Sisters Provincial House in Beaver Falls, Sr. Marilyn shared the new Felician Haiti Mission complex with the sisters and staff.

On Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6, Sr. Marilyn did a mission appeal at St. Cecilia’s Parish in nearby Rochester. We are so grateful to Sisters Jessica and Alicia who accompanied Sr. Marilyn and helped with the collection.

In the afternoon of May 6, Sr. Marilyn was at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Central Convent, where she shared the story of growth and blessings of the Felician Haiti Mission and gave an update on the new mission complex for the sisters and associates who had gathered in Founders Hall.

On Monday, May 7, Sr. Marilyn shared the Ministry of Presence at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School in Coraopolis, speaking to the Freshmen and Sophomore religion classes.

It has been a blessed journey, sharing the mission. But now it is time to go home to Jacmel, Haiti.

Sharing the Felician Haiti Mission in Michigan

“Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works themselves. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father. And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.” John 14:11-14

These words from the Gospel of John are truly being fulfilled in our hearing. During the weekend April 27-29, we were blessed to be in Troy and Shelby Township, MI, to visit with some friends and with the faith community of St. Therese of Lisieux Parish. This was the second time we have shared our story of the Felician Haiti Mission with this parish. We are so grateful that they accompany us on this journey with our Haitian brothers and sisters.
