May / June 2018


May and June bring us much to reflect on, as does this issue of Emmanuel. We rejoice in the power of faith at work in us as we are transformed by the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and by the gentle, persistent in-breaking of God into our lives as ultimate mystery. We wrestle with understanding God’s mercy more fully and living it ourselves. We find inspiration in the life of a prophet like Dorothy Day and in the symphony of the Spirit which is the Eucharist.
