People coming to believe, folks who are ill finding hope and healing, those disturbed by unclean spirits finally finding peace; these powerful signs accompanied the apostles. The miracles attracted attention, led people to want to know more, touched hearts, and paved the way for faith to be planted and to grow. The Holy Spirit working today is little different. Something stirs the heart of people to give faith a chance, Jesus becomes real for them, and they are added to the number of the faithful. Folks who are sick find hope and healing in God’s love and mercy. Those deeply troubled find peace. These things are happening right here at St. Louis, out in the pews among your fellow parishioners, and those choosing to become parishioners.
