From the Pastor's Desk

    Today is the “next to the last Sunday of Easter.” Next Sunday we will celebrate Pentecost and then return to Ordinary Time for the next six months. The readings that have been given to us for today are filled with many helpful themes to reflect upon. In the Acts of the Apostles, Luke tells us what the Apostles and women following Jesus did immediately following the Ascension of Jesus.                    
     They returned to the Upper Room where Jesus had celebrated the Last Supper. It was also the location where Jesus had appeared to them twice before - each appearance was on Sunday, when they were gathered together.            
     In those days before Pentecost, we may wonder what they were thinking and praying about. Who was this other Advocate? What would His presence do to them? In this week before Pentecost, we may reflect on the same thoughts. Who is the other Advocate and what good thing will He do to us?
