Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
Today is Pentecost Sunday, the day we celebrate the Birth of the Church. This birth or start was one of boldness, fire, wind and power. It is essential for us today to remember our roots and to bring compassion and salvation to others with that same Spirit!
