This Sunday Catholics and most other Christians celebrated Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, and by extension, us.

On Pentecost, the Apostles boldly porclaimed the Gospels, ande veryone there understood them despite coming from different lands and speaking different languages.

I think it's important for us to remember that. It's easy to give up on people, dismiss them saying "they don't get it." We do this to Islamic fundamentalists, domestic criminals, and even our own Church leaders.

Pentecost teaches us that when we speak the truth with courage and compassion, we will be understood through the Holy Spirit.
