Pentecost

Today we celebrate the great of Pentecost. It brings to an end the time of Easter in the liturgy. We celebrate today the coming of the Holy Spirit, in the form of tongues of fire which touched the heads of the disciples. The power of the Holy Spirit transformed them, gave them special gifts and the courage to witness to Jesus in Jerusalem and to the ends of the earth. The same Holy Spirit is given to us, the church of today, to enable us also to profess, live and share our faith in Jesus.

“Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth” (Psalm 104).
