The Life Force

The Spirit is always present, active and flowing throughout all of life. Always has been, and always will be!  God is always present, because God always Is! Did we really need George Lucas to tell us this in what he called “The Force”?

We just need to be aware of, and actively participate in, God’s life. Period. We are not forced into doing so (because we have been given the gift of free will), but I strongly advise that we take up God on this offer. We better appreciate the gift, purpose, and fulfillment of our lives this side of heaven, and will transition nicely into life eternal when the Lord calls us back home.

I am sensing and beginning to more obviously experience this reawakening, or New Pentecost, New Evangelization, Transfiguration/Transformation (whatever you’d like to call it) in our parish and throughout our diocese. I am seeing it and living it here in Wexford, and I am reading about it and hearing about it from both clergy and lay around the diocese.

A lot of good stuff is going on in our church, and one of the objectives of On Mission is to build upon the already building-up of the kingdom!

Yours in Christ,



Fr. Kevin
