5. Easter

Pentecost

The Easter Season, which begins with Easter Sunday and ends with Pentecost, is a time of great joy. These 50 days celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the restoration of creation. 
 
Wind! Fire! Fear! Awe! Chaos!  These are signs of that first Pentecost, signs that produced “new life” for ages to come.

The Dream that will not Depart

A prayer for World Day of Prayer for Vocations, May 11
 
Stifle not the dream that will not depart.
With the dream will come the means.
The dreams that will not depart
Can change the world.
They are the little plants of God.

St. Catherine of Siena: Saint, Mystic, and Doctor of the Church

St. Catherine of Siena and her twin sister were born on Annunciation Day, March 25, 1347. Catherine, a somewhat precocious child, learned the "Ave Maria" as soon as she could talk, and by age five was able to recite the "Angelus." Around age 7, she experienced the first of many unusual encounters, with messages from God directing her to prayer, penance and works of charity.
 
She not only lived in the presence of God of infinite loving-kindness and mercy, but quietly listened to God’s inspirations with an open heart.
