Dynamic Catholic, Alive! – The Holy Spirit
Today’s Gospel reading is Trinitarian, with references to the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit. In this passage from John, Christ assures His
Apostles that the Holy Spirit “will teach you everything and remind
you of all that I told you” (Jn 14:26). Who is the Holy Spirit? He is the
third person of the Most Blessed Trinity and “one and equal with the
Father and the Son” (Compendium, 47). “The Holy Spirit, whom
Christ the head pours out on his members, animates, and sanctifies
the Church” (CCC, 747).
Peace be with You
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you” (John 14: 27).
These familiar words from the Gospel of John invite us to reflect on the great need for peace in our world
The news is filled with examples of violence, political unrest, suffering and hardship. It’s easy to become
overwhelmed by the sadness and pain. In the face of these struggles, Christ’s words reassure and
comfort us. He tells us, “Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
What is the source of this inner peace? Earlier in the passage, Jesus says, “Whoever loves me will keep
my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him” (John 14:
23). True, lasting peace, Jesus tells us, is rooted in love of God and love of neighbor.
Genuine love of God leads us to a deeper, more selfless love of our neighbor. We begin to recognize the
face of Christ in those around us. As we live more fully in God’s love, we generously respond to the needs
of our brothers and sisters.
The Annual Catholic Appeal is an invitation to reflect Christ’s peace to a world in need. Thousands of
people turn to the archdiocese for hope and healing every day. In our parishes and apostolates, they
experience the light and love of Jesus.
Together, we are building up a community of peace. As missionary disciples, we give of ourselves –
offering Christ’s hope and joy to the least of our brothers and sisters. This Easter season, let us
experience Christ’s peace, and joyfully share that peace with everyone we meet.
