Pentecost (C) What can we do to stop the decline in the Catholic Church? Not a whole lot, actually. We will not be a thriving parish by trying to be a thriving parish. What we can do is to love Jesus and keep His commandments. We need to be good Christian friends supporting one another. We need to be spouses that discern God's will and do it together. When we work together and support each other, the Spirit can do great things through us. (9 June 2019)
Going Deeper: Do you and your spouse (if married) pray together and support each other in following God's will? Do you have close friends that you can talk to about faith? If you do, let them know how much you appreciate them. If you don't, try and be a good Christian friend to someone else.
