Dear Parishioners,

In the second reading of our Mass for Pentecost (Ordinary Form) St. Paul tells the Corinthians, “No one can say, 'Jesus is Lord,' except by the Holy Spirit.” Of course, St. Paul understands that no one can say this phrase and mean it, except by the Holy Spirit. (Plenty of people pay the Lord lip service.) Do you ever wonder whether you're living life in the power of the Holy Spirit? This is a pretty complicated question to answer sometimes, because all of us fail at times to live by God's power as much as we ought.

A general test question, however, is this: “Do I believe Jesus is Lord (of heaven, of the universe, of life, of the angels, of the saints, of my life, etc.)?” Or the question could be adjusted a little: “Do I want Jesus to be Lord of my life?” Perhaps I understand that I do not always treat Him as Lord of my life; I do not always live for Him as I ought. But do I at least want Him to be Lord of my life? Do I understand that He ought to be? Do I desire Him to be?

It is the work of the Holy Spirit to help us see the beauty and glory of Jesus Christ (always with his heavenly Father), to understand His important place as Savior and Lord of all humanity. Based on this vision of faith, it is then the work of the Holy Spirit to help us yield to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

So on this Pentecost, have a conversation with the Lord about your understanding of his Lordship. Talk with Him about your desire for him to reign over your entire life. Acknowledge Him as Lord, although it is clear that many in the world do not see Him so.

Have a blessed Pentecost!

In cordibus Iesu et Mariae,
Fr. Poggemeyer

Eucharistic Quotes

"The Holy Eucharist is a need of the heart of Christ, just as it is a need of our hearts. Sanctify and dedicate yourselves in all things in the spirit of love which prompted our Lord to institute the Holy Eucharist, wherein He perpetuates the gift of His Love to the glory of the Father."

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
