Who Is The Holy Spirit?

Pentecost Sunday 2016

This sermon focuses on why we need the Holy Spirit in our times.  The term Pentecost means 50 days (after Our Lord’s Passion, Death and Resurrection) and on this day the Holy Spirit descended upon Blessed Mother and the Apostles.  This action of the Holy  Spirit transformed them into veritable spiritual warriors for the Faith and enabled them to carry out the most important commandment – to go out into the world, preach the gospel and baptize in the name the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  It is the also the birthday of the Church, meaning that the Church became visible to the world on that day and its missionary activity began in earnest.  Unlike the modernist view of the world today, the apostles knew that missionary activity was, indeed, necessary to accomplish their mission.  Fr. Superior gives many examples of how this has been done throughout church history and credits those who, though relatively few in number today, continue this great work of salvation.
