Pentecost Year A
It is amazing but we are already at fifty days past Easter and today we celebrate the birthday of the Church. Today the Church came alive because the Spirit entered her. As it is with our own bodies, without the spirit we are dead. Today God also reunited the world under one voice. If you remember back in Genesis, the people built a tower to make a name for themselves and God confused their languages, so the tower was call Babel. They built the tower because they didn’t trust God’s promise not to flood the earth. They decided they were going to live how they liked and they would be safe now because they had a tower they could go to if God did flood things again. Today God reunites everything in the Spirit. The Church speaks one voice and it speaks to all people. There is no one that the truth of God is not for. If you have ever been to a multinational Mass you will notice that we all speak the same language of love and you can participate in God’s love.
