THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK FROM ST. AUGUSTINE SPIRITUALITY CENTER

May 25-31, 2014

 

This Sunday’s readings asks us to be “gentle and reverent” in sharing “Christ as Lord in our hearts.”

(1Peter 3:15-18) We can take an example from Pope Francis who is doing just that in Israel and Palestine.  Let

us pray for his safety in ministering in this area where Jesus once walked and taught.

 

St. Philip Neri is known as the Apostle of Rome. During the sixteen century he ministered to the many pilgrims who came to Rome and the poor.  He had a great sense of humor which he said is important in the Christian life.

 

Augustine of Canterbury, a Benedictine monk in the sixth century, was sent by Pope Gregory the Great from Rome to convert the English.  He is known as the Apostle to the English and founded the English Church.

 

Ascension Thursday, which is usually celebrated on the following Sunday, is the day on which we celebrate the return of Jesus to his heavenly Father.  It is on his day he promised to send us the Holy Spirit.

 

The last day of the month reminds us to be hospitable and visit our family and friends and those in need – the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Mary graciously travelled to minister to Elizabeth who was pregnant with John the Baptist.  It is here that Elizabeth recognizes that Mary is pregnant with Jesus and Mary sings her beautiful “Magnificat.”

 

Summer vacation is almost upon us.  May you have a blessed and fruitful summer full of God’s graces and protection.

 

Your sister in Christ,

Sister Rosemarie Goins

Spiritual Director
