Well, as Pentecost draws to a close, so does the liturgical season of Easter. And you know what I'm gonna do in honor of the end of Easter? Go to sleep! Because that's what the BIG EASTER'S gonna be like -- eternal rest! Isn't that wonderful?
While I'm sleeping, why don't y'all check out this article about the Pope's homily for Pentecost? Here's a snippet to get you excited:
.- Pentecost shows the Holy Spirit created the Catholic Church for all people, Pope Benedict said in his homily to mark Pentecost Sunday June 12.
“From the first moment, in fact, the Holy Spirit created (the Church) as the Church of all people. It embraces the entire world, transcending the boundaries of race, class, nation - it breaks down all barriers and unites people in the profession of the Triune God. From the beginning, the Church is one, catholic and apostolic,” said the Pope to a packed congregation within St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.And as another little reminder of the universality of the Church, may I welcome today's readers from the United States of America, United Kingdom, Peru, Switzerland, Namibia, Philippines, Australia, Germany, Romania, and Tunisia!
