God is alive and is renewing the world today through the power of His Holy Spirit! The Church is experiencing a new Pentecost and millions of people are being touched by this renewal of the Spirit. Saint Paul’s Outreach is a part of this renewal.
God loves us and he wants us to live a full and happy life. He created us to be in relationship with him. But sin has separated us from our relationship with God. Jesus came into the world to forgive our sins and reconcile us to God and to one another. Jesus Christ is the only one who can give us the power to live a new life. Through him we can know God’s love and share in God’s life with others. In order to enter into this full new life we must accept Jesus Christ into our lives as Lord and Savior. Then we can be baptized in the Holy Spirit and experience the power to live a new life.
“May there be repeated thus in Christian families the spectacle of the apostles gathered together in Jerusalem after the Ascension of Jesus to heaven, when the newborn Church was completely united in communion of thought and prayer with Peter and around Peter, the shepherd of the lambs and of the sheep. And may the Divine Spirit deign to answer in a most comforting manner the prayer that rises to him from every corner of the earth: ‘Renew Your wonders in our time, as though for a new Pentecost, and grant that the holy Church, preserving unanimous and continuous prayer, together with Mary the Mother of Jesus, and also under the guidance of St. Peter, may increase the reign of the divine Savior, the reign of truth and justice, the reign of love and peace. Amen.’”
– Pope Saint John XXIII
