Filled with the Holy Spirit
Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth! (Psalm 104:30)
During this Sunday’s Pentecost feast, we will hear this Psalm proclaimed. In this time of pandemic, our prayers for renewal and healing may have a newfound earnestness. And yet also during this time, we have experienced in profound and powerful ways how so many Spirit-led people are responding courageously and generously to those in need.
“How manifold are your works, O Lord!” the psalm continues. With nearly 40 organizations featured in our COVID-19 Catholic Faithful Response Fund, we have seen the abundant variety of ways that people are being of service, and we “are glad in the Lord”.
In our Pentecost edition of the Catholic Foundation’s newsletter, we feature numerous donors and funds that are modeling “different forms of service” in the name of the same Lord (1 Cor 12:12).
You, too, are part of this body of Christ, who has been given to drink of one Spirit. We thank God for you, and we are here to support your calling to be generous and faithful.
