Dearly Beloved, our celebration today concludes the season of Easter. Easter is the feast of light, the new life that begins with Christ’s resurrection.  Pentecost is the celebration of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. It marks the beginning of the new covenant, and the birth of the public life of the Church. The celebration of our birthdays is always a moment of great joy and feast. We, at Holy Spirit Parish therefore, have a dual celebration on this day of Pentecost.

Dearly Beloved, In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  We just invoked the presence of the Trinity. The Father who has loved us in Christ; The Son who died that we may have forgiveness for our sins; The Holy Spirit who empowers us. The church has always maintained this dogma as a mystery. It is a mystery to appreciate, but not necessarily a mystery to unravel. Many who have attempted to explain this mystery ended up in heresies.

We read last week from the book of Genesis how he made a covenant with Abraham. He was going to be a father to Abraham and his descendants; however, he expected Abraham to be trusting and faithful. Friends, there is nothing wrong to be hopeful and expectant for all the positive things as we commit our lives to God.
