The Holy Spirit make us One Reflection by Father Stefan

Rick Warren’s Call for Christians to Unite With Catholics, ‘Holy Father’ Raising Concerns http://t.co/UE68BCc8oE via @sharethis

We read in the catechism, “However, one cannot charge with the sin of separation those who at present are born into those communities (that resulted from such separation) and in them are brought up in the faith of Christ, and the Catholic Church accepts them with respect and affection as brothers…All who are justified by faith in Baptism are incorporated into Christ; they therefore have a right to be called Christians, and with good reason are accepted as brothers in the Lord by the children of the Catholic Church.” (818)

Pope Francis spoke to the participants in the 37th national convocation of the renewal of the Holy Spirit on Sunday June 1 2014, “To remain united in the love that the Lord Jesus asks us to have for all people, and in the prayer to the Holy Spirit for the attainment of this unity which is necessary for evangelization in the name of Jesus. Remember that ‘the charismatic renewal is de facto ecumenical in nature…’ The Catholic renewal rejoices in what the Holy Spirit is accomplishing in the other Churches. 1 Malines 5,3”

Pope Francis ended his address with, “Seek unity in the renewal, the unity which comes from the Trinity! and I am waiting for all of you, charismatics the world over, to celebrate with the Pope your great jubilee on the feast of Pentecost 2017 in Saint Peter’s square! Thank you.”

Come Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit makes us one as the Trinity is One.
