Most Blessed Light Divine

Titian, The Descent of the Holy Spirit, Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, Venice, Italy

This Sunday we celebrate the Soleminity of Pentecost, the commemoration of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Mary and the Apostles, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1-3).

Pentecost concludes the Easter season and celebrates the beginning of the Church when the Apostles, with the gifts received, went out to preach the Gospel to all nations.

Even without external manifestations, like tongues of fire, the Holy Spirit continues to be with us today and helps understand and use the gifts that we have received.

May 23, 2024   Mystagogical Reflection on the Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation

USCCB and War in the Holy Land


October 8, 2023
WASHINGTON – In response to the continued tensions and violence that erupted into warfare between Gaza and Israel on October 7, Bishop David J. Malloy of Rockford, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on International Justice and Peace, calls for prayers for peace in the Holy Land:

“On October 7, the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary, the world watched the operation launched from Gaza and the rapid call to arms from Israel that ensued. Almost 50 years to the day of the launch of the 1973 Arab–Israeli War, once again war is spilling out in the Holy Land. With it brings the mounting casualties and hostilities unfolding on all sides, and increased threats to the Status Quo of the Holy Places among Jews, Muslims, and Christians further dimming any hope for peace.
