Keeping our Covenant Life strong for the Work of Unity among the Churches

06-10-2014Peter Poppleton

We are privileged to live in an amazing time when a powerful new movement of the Holy Spirit is sweeping the world – building unity under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

This Pentecost City of the Lord was blessed to participate in events that involved Archbishop Gomez in Los Angeles and Auxiliary Bishop Nevares in Phoenix. At the cathedral in LA, Archbishop Gomez celebrated Mass for the many Lay Ecclesial movements in Los Angeles and Orange counties. At Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Tempe, Bishop Nevares, along with two evangelical pastors, shared in an Evening of Praise and Intercession for Christian Unity. Catholics from various parishes, members of the Charismatic Renewal Ministry, and Evangelicals joined in exuberant praise and worship and invoked the Holy Spirit to bring about greater unity among Christians. As we Catholics gather with other Christian Churches and other movements of the Spirit, we do so with profound respect for the grace operative in different denominations and charisms.
