Clergy Page READ MORE week of May 31, 2020 - Pentecost Sunday
 
It has been impressed on us that Pentecost is the birthday of the Church.  With Pentecost, the Church has been gifted with life and has started to grow.  This life and this growth were made possible through the Holy Spirit at Pentecost given to the apostles.  As recorded in the Acts of the Apostles, as they have received the Holy Spirit, the apostles went out with courage and with strength to preach the Good News and started baptizing people in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  And so, the Church has begun and since then the Church has grown and to this day it is alive through and in us.
       Let us look at the scriptural readings to appreciate this fact of life and growth.  The First Reading is taken from the Acts of the Apostles.  It is chapter Two.  This Reading therefore shows at the outset what happened to the Apostles after Jesus ascended to heaven.  It well described how the Holy Spirit descended on them: a strong driving wind and tongues as of fire.  And the Spirit enabled them to proclaim and the people, although coming from different places and have different languages understood the message.  Let us participate in proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ for us to grow
personally and for the Church to grow in number.
       The Second Reading is taken from the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians.  This is the Pauline illustration of the Body of Christ, using our own body having many and different parts, having respective functions but all lead to building up of that one body.  I think it is easy to understand that each one has his or her respective role to play in the body.  Not all can become the head, otherwise we are making a mutant; not all can become the hands, otherwise we are making a monster; not all can become the feet, otherwise we are making a new creature.  Pentecost is significant to remind us to be one and be united as one body in Christ.
      The Gospel Reading is taken from the Gospel of John with the famous Easter greeting, “Peace be with you!”  And the message continues, “Receive the Holy Spirit.  Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them…”  There is a message of peace and a message of reconciliation.  And so, Pentecost should be significant because of the call for us to have peace and to reconcile with one another whatever differences we have.  To forgive is a way to grow.  To understand, to be one and united, to be at peace and to reconcile – all these should make significant the event of Pentecost in our life today, especially as we return to church and the public celebration of the Eucharist.
       A practical point for us to think about: Jesus made a promise to his followers, to us all, that He will not leave us orphans.  Jesus will ask the Father to send us an Advocate.  On Pentecost, Jesus fulfilled His promise.  And so today as good stewards of God’s manifold grace, let us be reminded to fulfill our promises.  Let us live according to the vows we made before the altar of the Lord.  When building up a community, when establishing our family, we have to be more aware of our promises and our vows in order that our relationships will last and will have no end.

WELCOME BACK TO OLPH CHURCH!
Fr. Edmundo N. Barut, Jr.
