Monday, Second Week of Easter


We had the honor of sharing in the Easter Sacraments with two of our students yesterday in our chapel at Saint Joseph’s College. Surrounded by family, friends, students, faculty and staff, Derek and Jocelynn professed their faith loudly and boldly.

When they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken;
and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4: 31)

We had the honor of sharing in the Easter Sacraments with two of our students yesterday in our chapel at Saint Joseph’s College. Surrounded by family, friends, students, faculty and staff, Derek and Jocelynn professed their faith loudly and boldly. And then left the chapel to continue their life as Catholic Christians.

Our RCIA process gave our candidate and catechumen opportunities to share their faith as well as hear from community members and campus ministry staff

about their faith life. Bold and confident, we shared our faith with one another in the hopes the Spirit would shake something deep inside. And now we watch them and support them as they live the rest of their college careers, filled with the Holy Spirit, in the hopes they will confidently share their faith with those they come in contact with here and in their future together.

The disciples, filled with the Holy Spirit, went into their daily lives speaking boldly of Jesus’ love and mercy. May we live our own Christian commitment in our daily lives and speak boldly of Jesus’ love for us all.

Jesus, help me to serve you . . .

Give me the confidence and courage I need to . . .

Rev. Vince Wirtner, C.PP.S. (Cincinnati)
