At Pentecost Our Lady and the Apostles received the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room in the form of wind and flame. It heralded the beginning of the mission of the Church which is continued by every baptised person today.
We are all called to be part of the Church's apostolic mission with the same zeal which led Our Lady and the Apostles to abandon themselves to Christ.
Don't hold back; use the resources that are being provided to support your efforts. There may well be non-churchgoing Catholics in your family and friendship circle who are waiting for your gentle invitation to re-connect with the Lord and their local parish.
Thank you and God bless you.
Rt Rev Malcolm McMahon
Bishop of Nottingham
