Father Michael Ryan’s Pentecost homily: The same Holy Spirit that Bishop Oscar Romero drew courage from is alive in all of us

My friends, the disciples began their Pentecost huddled in fear, and that may be true for us, too. But the same Spirit that set the disciples of Jesus on fire, and Oscar Romero, too, is alive in us -– maybe a little dormant, but alive. There is only one thing in the way: fear. May God’s Spirit and the transforming power of the Eucharist we now celebrate and receive, consume our fears, fire us up, and truly set us free!
