Today’s feast of Pentecost is also known as the Birthday of the Church. How are we church for each other at this time? One way is the way we support one another’s faith by the kind of response we give to the Lord in our worship. That response needs to be active, alive and enthusiastic. We make a difference to one another by the way we are attentive to what is happening at Mass. We can build one another up by the reverence we show. Eucharistic ministers certainly notice the reverence of people as they come to receive the Lord in communion. We can also weaken one another just by our inattention, our look of boredom, our non-participation. We have an effect on one another even when we don’t always know it. Our responses and actions during liturgy are part of our ministry to one another as members of the Body of Christ. Let each of us celebrate each Mass well – for ourselves and for those gathered around us.
