Call to Prayer
Pope Francis is inviting all Christians to join an initiative to pray, fast, and perform works of charity on 14 May, to implore God for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fruits of the Spirit
As we journey toward Pentecost, we call to mind the “fruits of the spirit” – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Preparing for What is to Come
In our tradition, the daily scriptures we begin reading now are preparing us for what is to come: the Feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the followers of Jesus, and the Church was born. The passages we read from John’s Gospel are commonly referred to as Jesus’ farewell discourse, given to his disciples immediately before he is arrested and taken to be crucified. He speaks of how we will relate to him, and what is the pattern of the believer’s life. All of it is grounded in community and expressed in terms of how we love.
