Divine Mercy - Jesus I trust in You

Watch:  St. Philip Neri: The Apostle of Joy. This week we celebrate St. Philip Neri, the Apostle of Rome. To a Rome ravaged by war and wearied by the decadence of the Renaissance popes, St. Philip Neri came as an unlikely reformer. Mystic, hermit, prankster, and effortless
leader of men, Neri had a great sense of humor and an even greater heart. 

Learn:  FORMED Now! The Holy Spirit in Light of Pentecost. This week we celebrate the Solemnity of Pentecost, often referred to as the birthday of the Church. Join Dr. Tim Gray and Dr. Ben Akers as they discuss Christ's sending of the Holy Spirit in this monumental
event. After watching, you'll recognize the meaning of Pentecost for our lives today.

Listen:  "The Holy Spirit: Third Person of the Trinity by Fr. Shannon Collins " In this captivating presentation, Fr. Shannon Collins discusses the essential character of the Holy Spirit and his role in salvation history. Drawing upon Scripture and Tradition, Fr. Collins explains the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit and how he works in the lives of believers. Listeners are sure to come to a better appreciation of this "sweet guest of our soul" who seeks to bring us closer to divine life.

Dynamic Catholic, Alive!
“Keep my word”
In the Gospel, Jesus said to His disciples, “Whoever loves me will keep My word.” Sometimes it is easy for us to forget that “keeping” or living the word of God doesn’t just mean that we live it on Sunday. Jesus is calling us to live God’s word each day of our lives. Jesus didn’t say that we get to pick and choose which of His words we live and which we set aside. We can see through Jesus’ example and the example of His disciples that living His word is
radical. Living His word is counter cultural. It takes commitment, perseverance, and fortitude, but that is why Jesus gave us the powerful gifts of the Sacraments, grace, and most of all the Holy Spirit. When we accept these gifts there is no reason we can’t answer Jesus’ call to fuse our will to His. The good news is that living God’s word leads to authentic and lasting love, joy, and peace. This week we can meditate on how we are answering Jesus’ call to live His word every day of our lives. We can ask ourselves when we have failed to do this. Then we can pray for Jesus’ guidance and assistance to fully answer His call.
