On the occasion of Pentecost, the Bishops of Canada expressed their “heartfelt appreciation for your ongoing participation in the mission of the Church, a true share in the life of Christ” to CCCM and all catholic movements and associations in Canada.  In their message, they highlight a speech by Blessed John Paul II on Pentecost 1998, in which the Pope expressed his conviction that ecclesial movements and new communities are “the fruit of a new Pentecost”.   They express that “it is our sincere hope and our deep prayer this Pentecost that by the Spirit’s gift, the members of associations and movements might share in the grace of walking by faith, building in hope and witnessing to love.”
