Pentecost Sunday

In dialogue with the world

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

Pentecost, the descent of the Holy Spirit, is the feast of the Church par excellence. It is her coming of age before the world. Immediately after the descent of the Spirit, St. Peter, the first pope makes a public proclamation of the mystery of Christ. He engages those present in a dialogue inviting them to conversion.

This week we will also celebrate the memorial of St. Paul VI, whose luminous pontificate between 1963 and 1978, has set the course for the Church in our times and her pastoral work. I share with you a fragment of his programmatic encyclical Ecclesiam Suam that will help us better understand Pope Francis’ pastoral guidelines and his emphasis on dialogue.

“Seeing that the Church’s ever-increasing self-awareness and its struggle to model itself on Christ’s ideal can only result in its acting and thinking quite differently from the world around it, which it is nevertheless striving to influence. The Gospel clearly warns us of this difference and the need to keep ourselves distinct from the world. By the world, here, is meant either those human beings who are opposed to the light of faith and the gift of grace, those whose naive optimism betrays them into thinking that their own energies suffice to win them complete, lasting, and gainful prosperity, or, finally, those who take refuge in an aggressively pessimistic outlook on life and maintain that their vices, weaknesses and moral ailments are inevitable, incurable, or perhaps even desirable as sure manifestations of personal freedom and sincerity.

The current limits of our parish territory are the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Biscayne Bay to the west, 17th Street to the south and 69th Street to the north. Therefore, if you live within our boundaries you are by the law of the Church a parishioner at St. Patrick.
