A CHALLENGE

The apostles were given by Jesus the challenge of laying the foundation of his Church.  They completed their task well, but we must remember that it was only a foundation that they built.  The apostles left the responsibility for the growth and development of the Holy Church to us!  Empowered by the Lord, they bequeathed to all generations of Christians, who follow them, the great testimony of faith, with the bold summons to action given by Jesus himself : “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations…Teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28: 19a & 20a).”  If we are obedient to this divine command, like the apostles on that first Pentecost, we must open our hearts and minds and be receptive to the descent, power and operation of the Holy Spirit.  Without the Spirit of God, we are nothing!  On the day of Pentecost, the apostles were transformed into something they had not been, just as we are capable of becoming.

“Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing something is real even if we do not see it.”

Hebrews 11: 1
