Greetings on the occasion of the New Pentecost. May the Holy Spirit who has been guiding the Cardijn Community International since its inception continue to shower His grace and guidance upon each one of you.
New Pentecost has always been special in the life of the Cardijn Community International (CCI). New Pentecost is a program launched in 2005 by the Cardijn Community International to promote the dream of Pope John XXIII that Vatican II should open the way to a New Pentecost in the Church.
"O Holy Spirit, renew your wonders in this our day, as by a new Pentecost," was the prayer for the Council proposed by Pope John. New Pentecost was conceived as a follow up to the successful CCI conference on Vatican II in the era of Globalisation held in Bangkok to mark the 40th anniversary of the opening of Vatican II in 1962.
The International Coordination and Asia-Pacific Coordination of the CCI is holding a New Pentecost event on the 29th May 2010 at La Salle, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia followed by a meeting of the Coordination on the 29th and 30th May.
CCI rededicates its commitmment to reintroduce Cardijn's spirituality, prophetic vision and methodology and to work build a green and just world.
On this New Pentecost, CCI has dedicated an exclusive and all new website www.newpentecost.com. We request you to visit the website and to send information, photographs and comments to be uploaded in the website.
Once again wishing you a Spirit filled New Pentecost to you and all in your community.
