On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, known also as the Holy Ghost, in our midst. When Jesus rose from the dead, he poured out the Holy Spirit upon the apostles- his first gift, the greatest gift, the gift that contains all other gifts: God Himself, the Third Person of the Holy Trinity.
To be a Catholic in 16th-century England was dangerous. Parliament passed laws that made life for Catholics very difficult. For example, celebrating the Mass was outlawed; many priests were persecuted and even killed for doing so. To shelter a priest was considered treason and punishable by death.
A message on the Annual Catholic Appeal from Archbishop Sartain:
God Bless Pope Francis! We give thanks for his faithfulness and guidance for our Church, and pray for him as he begins his papacy.
