Pentecost Sunday Birthday Blowout

Today is Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, came upon the Apostles and Our Lady. It is also the Church's birthday. Happy Birthday, Church! Woohoo! Still looking good after nearly 2,000 years. And thanks to the Holy Spirit for leading us on the path of life.

Today is also my little sister Claire's 18th birthday. Happy Birthday, Claire! She's my best friend - a funny, intelligent, beautiful young woman I'm happy to call my sister.
