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.

Homily of the Feast of Mary Mother of God - 2019

 

Dearly Beloved, as so many in the world celebrate the beginning of a new year, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Mother of God. This celebration, in NO way admits the divinity of Mary. The church has always affirmed that Mary is not divine, but she is as close to divinity as any creature can get. She is the daughter of the Father, the mother of the Son and the spouse of the Holy Spirit.
