This Sunday the Church celebrates Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit filled the apostles and made them bold witnesses to the Risen Christ. That same Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, and the Advocate, fills each of us today. He makes us advocates for the very lives he has created, and gives us courage to fight the evil of abortion.
This Pentecost is also National Voter Registration Sunday, on which many Churches will give parishioners an opportunity to fill out a voter registration form so that, in response to the mission the Holy Spirit gives us to renew the face of the earth, we may exercise the right and duty to vote for pro-life candidates in this year’s elections.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful, and through us restore a Culture of Life.
