          Not all prayers are answered, or I should say, not answered in the way we wanted. Even though not all prayers are answered in they way we desired, hopefully we can see that we have received graces we probably would not have received had those prayers been answered as we wished. We have plans and sometimes our plans are not fulfilled. Our lives can sometimes revolve around ‘me’ or ‘I’ or ‘myself. But God has still more wonderful plans for us if we will allow them to be fulfilled. It is only in the next life that we will fully understand God’s plans. Even after Jesus’ resurrection some of Jesus’ disciples asked him when he would restore the kingdom to Israel as we heard in the first reading for the Ascension (Acts 1:6). They still believed he was a Messiah to drive out the Romans from Israel and did not yet fully understand that he was a Messiah to save us from our sins. They would understand Jesus only when they would receive the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. They needed the grace of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost to fully understand Jesus. Like them when we wait in prayer like Mary, the women and apostles and disciples before Pentecost we will receive graces from prayer that otherwise we would not receive.
During this week before Pentecost I ask you to please pray like Mary, the women, the apostles and disciples for a renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Church and on all of us that we may respond to God better. Please believe that your prayer will be answered. Pray that our celebration of Pentecost will lead to the Church being renewed and strengthened by God’s Spirit.
