May 8th & 9th

We use visible and invisible boundaries to determine who is part of a group and who is not. Boundaries provide protection and a sense of security, but they can also cause distrust and discrimination. When a boundary is crossed, it is often surprising and overwhelming to the person doing the crossing, the people witnessing the crossing, or both. In this week's readings, the Holy Spirit crosses—actually breaks—a boundary that defined the early church. The Spirit’s gracious action astounds the believers, who see that “the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles”.
