Pentecost is celebrated as the birthday of the Catholic Church. It marks the day when the Holy Spirit came to the Apostles in the upper room. After that, the Apostles went out into the streets and boldly proclaimed the Gospel of the Lord.
Pentecost – The Importance of the Holy Spirit
“Knowledge of faith is possible only in the Holy Spirit: to be in touch with Christ, we must first have been touched by the Holy Spirit. He comes to meet us and kindle faith in us.”
“Come, Holy Spirit!” Yes, in any discernment of God’s call, we need to call on the Holy Spirit to come to fill and inspire us. Do we think to call on the Holy Spirit? Pentecost reminds us to do this not just on one feast during the year . . . but every day.
