From Father Richard's desk – Pentecost

My Dear Brothers & Sisters,

Isaac of Stella, a Cistercian monk and writer, when speaking to his monks asked “Often, when we go to pray in a chapel or sacred place, we seem not to find the consolation of God’s presence that we are seeking; and yet when we go about the business of the day, we can come across an experience of God in the people we meet.” He says, “A bit like Mary and the women who go in search of Jesus at the tomb, and do not find him….and coming away encounter him in the garden.”

Pentecost is the feast when we celebrate the gifts of the Holy Spirit to the people of God and the birthday of the church. The Holy Spirit helps us to recognise Christ in the hum drum of our lives and guarantees that however or whenever we search for the Lord, He will in His own time reveal Himself. Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
Fr. Richard
