Year of Faith: May 2013 - Holy Spirit
"To believe in the Holy Spirit means to worship him as God just like the Father and the Son. It means to believe that the Holy Spirit comes into our hearts so that we as children of God might know our Father in heaven. Moved by God's Spirit, we can change the face of the earth." (YOUCAT 113)
We are given the Holy Spirit at our Baptism. The Spirit of God is with us always. When we receive the Sacrament of Confirmation we do not receive any more Holy Spirit but our wisdom and awareness of the Gifts of the Spirit are manifested in us.
We have everything we need to be able to discern God's call.
Year of Faith Pilgrimage
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, encouraged us during this Year of Faith to seek opportunities to deepen our faith and renew our baptismal call to holiness. A pilgrimage to a sacred place, especially one we might not have visited before, can be an ideal occasion for this. In addition, in observance of this Year of Faith, the Church offers pilgrims the gift of indulgences as a chance to open themselves to the purity of heart and penitential spirit associated with this special year.
