In his homily for Pentecost, Father Joseph LoJacono, pastor of St. Veronica and St. Hugh of Cluny Parishes in Philadelphia, shared how the Holy Spirit restores true life in our hearts.
The anger and polarization that dominate the headlines can be reversed, says Father LoJacono, if we “don’t fall into the dialectic” that reduces reality to a battle between “us” and “them.”
