Vignettes edited 1

MAY 17   SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER  

Readings: Acts 8:5-8, 14-17/1 Pt 3:15-18/Jn 14:15-21

If you love me you will keep my commandments. Love God and neighbor. The Holy Spirit is the love between the Father and the Son. It is through the gift of the Spirit that we are able to love at all.  It is through the Holy Spirit that God is with us, always.  Encouraged by the gift of the Spirit, we can witness to this great love to all those who feel alone, abandoned and discouraged. As we enter these last two weeks of the Easter Season and look forward to Pentecost, let us pray for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit’s gifts, that others may know us by our love.
