From the Pulpit

REFLECTION: THE REVELATION OF THE SPIRIT.

SOLEMNITY OF PENTECOST SUNDAY

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 20: 19-23; Acts 2: 1-11; 1 Cor 12: 3b-7, 12-13

Jesus, before ascending to the Father, promised the disciples that they were to receive the Power of the Holy Spirit. On Pentecost, the fiftieth day after the resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit came to be known to our senses. The disciples’ eyes perceived tongues as of fire resting on their heads. Their ears heard a noise like a strong wind. They felt the house filled with the power of the Spirit and manifesting the fire of God’s love. The Spirit of the Father and the Son filled the disciples enabling them to proclaim God’s wondrous love without hindrance of languages’ limitations. All present that day were astounded and amazed. The Holy Spirit has chosen a body to live in, the Church is born. And a new age has begun, the age of the Spirit.

 What the disciples had heard and seen on that day, Pentecost day, became prophetic signals of what the Church will go forth witnessing in her life. The newly baptized through water and imposition of hands, receive the Holy Spirit. The community at Corinth testified to the presence of the Holy Spirit dispensing different spiritual gifts to the members, the Body of Christ. The Church is powered up by divine energy that needs just a spark to ignite in with life and joy, just a spark to change your life and my life. It is the Holy Spirit that leads the disciples into missionary trips; it is the Spirit that builds the Church; it is the Spirit that empowers any person to confess that Christ is Lord; it is the Spirit that forgives sins.

Some members of the Church today say that they were baptized and confirmed but never had any experience of the presence of the Holy Spirit. If you, brother or sister in the Lord, share in this question, then it is the time for you to open up your heart to welcome the divine Spirit. Examine your conscience before the Lord, make a sincere confession and pray for the manifestation of  the Holy Spirit in your life. Remember the Lord Jesus saying that his father will give the Holy Spirit to whoever asks him.(Luke 11:13). Trust in the Lord and stay constant in your love for Jesus. At the appropriate moment of God, the gift will be granted you for the building of the Church.

On a note of testimony, 317 years ago, a young seminarian at a Jesuit college in Paris, France, together with some friends of his, prayed on that Pentecost day for the Spirit’s gifts. The little group soon formed into a community that will receive the mission of Jesus to minister to the less fortunate members of their cities. This community was put under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Through the three centuries, the Holy Spirit has led them and those who followed them to the ends of the earth. So, the Congregation of the Holy Spirit was born, spread and reached to you. These are the Spiritans to whom I belong as a religious-missionary in the Church. Let us all celebrate with rejoicing and gladness the outpouring of the Spirit, the birth of the Church and the birth of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit.

SPIRITAN PARISHES IN DAYTON - OHIO

SPIRITAN PARISHES IN DAYTON - OHIO


The Spiritans began working in Ohio (Fr. Steurer in Troy, St Patrick's, 1872, and Fr. Ott in Piqua, St Boniface, with 5 mission stations, 1873) even before the arrival of their 1st Provincial (Fr. Strub in 1874).
- In 1928, they took over the ministry to the African Americans in Cincinnati (St. John the Baptist Church). That same year, the Archbishop asked them to take care of the growing African American Community in Dayton.
- Since then, the Spiritans have dedicated their ministry among African American Catholics and all who joined, and they still are continuing ministering among urban and rural parishes.
- At the moment they serve 5 churches in the Dayton area: Corpus Christi, Our Lady of Mercy (Our Lady of Grace Parish), Queen of Martyrs Parish, St. Benedict the Moor, and St. Mary, striving to be a light that shines to brighten the life of the people they serve in the Archdiocese of the Most Rev. Dennis Marion Schnurr.

Assumption Food Pantry Joins CSSMV

For 49 years the Assumption Food Pantry has been a part of many lives: those who have received a helping hand when in need and those who have volunteered with love and dedication. It is with mixed feelings that we are no longer operating independently at the former Assumption Church site.

By God's glory our sorrows are always transformed to new life.  Tuesday, March 1, 2016, marked a new beginning as we partner with the Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley (CSSMV) Food Pantry.  This partnership allows us to provide expanded services and resources to the Assumption Food Pantry clients. Cindy Rogerson will continue serving our brothers and sisters in need on-site at the CSSMV location, 922 West Riverview Avenue, and she will keep us up to date with news and information.

We would like to express our great appreciation to all who have volunteered their time and talent, and given monetary or food donations over the past 49 years.  Our Lady of Grace Parish is committed to the success of this new partnership and we pray that you will continue to help us support this vital community resource as you have in the past.  We will continue to provide food chests at each worship site for donations of staples and food pantry donation envelopes, and we encourage continued volunteerism at CSSMV.

Our Lady of Grace is possible because of those who give of their Time, Talent and Treasure.
