PENTECOST

WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF ASTONISHMENT

Pope Francis writes,

"A fundamental element of Pentecost is astonishment. Our God is a God of astonishment; this we know."


May we each speak to each other in a language the other can understand, which is always that of love!


The full excerpt from Pope Francis is below.

National Kite Day!

In this time of Pentecost, it is very appropriate that we soar with homemade kites.

Ven Holy Spirit Ven!

NPR recently did a story on parenting and failure. Here's a quote, "The takeaway is that when your child is struggling on something or has setbacks, don't focus on their abilities, focus on what they can learn from it," Haimovitz says. One way, she says, is to ask a child: "How can you use this as a jumping-off point?"
