Let the Scriptures Speak

Hamm, SJ

Have You Sent Your Pentecost Cards?

Pentecost can awaken us to the startling communal dimension of our faith. We believe that the incarnate and risen Lord continues to work with this immense, sinful, gifted community to heal a wounded world.


The Word Embodied

Kavanaugh, SJ

The Difference
It Makes

St. Paul tells us that the something they experienced was enough to make them feel like one vibrant body, unified in a common good and goal. They cherished differences, but only because of the different ways they revealed the one splendor of the gift they shared.


Historical Cultural Context

John J. Pilch

Mediter-ranean Leaders

God is indeed pleased with this beloved Son, for by raising him from the dead God has honored him far more than any human accolades ever could.


from the
Early Church

Leo the Great

Since the day of Pentecost a rain of charisms, a river of blessings, has watered every desert and dry land, for the Spirit of God has swept over the waters to renew the face of the earth, and a blaze of new light has shone out to dispel our former darkness.
