Happy Birthday, dear Catholic Church!

I love a birthday!  And I love the Catholic Feast Day celebrations!

Today, we are blessed with both, Pentecost, the Birthday of the Catholic Church!  Right after mass we came home and made a big, vanilla birthday cake to celebrate God’s unconditional love for all of us, and the many gifts of the Holy Spirit…have you unpacked your gifts yet?  Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety and Fear of the Lord?  How about all the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, you know, the one’s you prayed for these past nine days during the Novena for Pentecost?  Did you enjoy greater Love, Joy, Peace, patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and greater Self-control?  If you are still waiting to unwrap your gifts, or unpack your Fruits, what are you waiting for?!

Today’s a birthday party! God Bless the Catholic Church, one and all!
