OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL Food For Faith Living from the desk of Fr. Mark God’s relationship with humanity stretches from the creation to the end of time. Every generation has hungered for more clarity, depth and expression of what it means to believe. The wide variety of readings for Pentecost display this. The pre-historical chapters of Genesis (Abraham is 1st historical person) present magnificent stories seeking to explain how this happened., The tower of Babel (1st reading) is one of the four “sin stories” as many languages separate peoples from each other and God. Another reading (Exodus) depicts God telling Moses what God intends for and expects from the people. They enter into the Covenant proclaiming: “Everything God has said, we will do.” This is short lived. The faithlessness of people is recorded many times over in the Bible, ever showing God’s faithfulness throughout history leading up to God joining us on earth. In Joel, the sweeping promise “I will pour out My Spirit upon all peoples” points to today’s feast. In Acts (1st reading) the confusion of Babel is reversed: people speaking different languages understand each other! As “the people hear the mighty works of God!” The Gospel sums up the meaning of the gift of the Spirit to all of us. Jesus says: “The Holy Spirit will teach you everything and remind you of all I tell you.” These wonderful words are understood by people of faith. The process of believing is the same today as in ancient days. Still, the problem remains. God respects us by giving us the freedom to decide. This profound truth is the power of love: it neither coerces nor threatens; it invites. Human history, our personal lives, confirm this each time we need to pray, “Lord, forgive me, a sinner.” When the Apostles received the Spirit, they go forth unafraid, their lives changed. It changed Paul from persecutor to proclaimer. Today (2nd reading) he says; “No one can say Jesus is Lord, except thru the Holy Spirit.” This is true for us. Unique as each one of us is, living the Spirit.” we are the one, living Body of Christ! We are a new creation! We have not received a spirit of slavery, but of freedom, to call God, our Father!” Good News indeed.
