Pentecost Message from Eastern Rite Catholic Filipinos

Thursday, May 31, 2012

"Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you."
And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit.
If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."
- JOHN 20: 21-23

Again, i like to say that this Blogspot Eastern Rite Catholic Filipino is using the Julian Paschalion so the celebration of Pentecost, on which we commemorate the descend of the Holy Spirit to the Most Blessed Virgin Theotokos and Mother Mary and the Apostles, it also the commemoration of the Birth of the Church, at the same time the Eastern Rite Catholic Filipinos have reach one year of giving Updates and disseminating Information to our Brethren Latin Rite Filipinos about Eastern Rite Catholic Churches which until know are unknown. On this Pentecost the Church begin and have sprung many Branches, different Rites but in Union of the One Church of our Lord Jesus Christ the Catholic Church

We also pray, that other Church also established by our Lord Jesus Christ through the Apostles who have since been separated into us from Religious or Political circumstances, will be soon united to the one Church instituted by God, the Church which was built upon the Rock of St. Peter and that the Gates of Hades will never prevail it, look at how the Church has survived for 1979 Years

On this Pentecost Sunday, which is coming next Sunday and have ended last Sunday in the Gregorian Calendar may the Holy Spirit guide us and be our Protector. And by the grace and mercy of God, he gave us more Blessings to continue this Blog, with the intercession from the Blessed Virgin Theotokos. Amin
