“…there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance..” – Acts 2:3-4
Pentecost. The day promised by the Lord Jesus. The Comforter, the Paraclete had come at last. It is the day of wonder in the Church, a day where men hiding in fear found their courage to speak. It was a day that not only transformed the Apostles, it transformed the landscape of Jerusalem. The wonder and awe experienced by the Christians that day could not be contained; they had to go out and tell others what they now understood. Jesus is the Messiah! God has walked among us! Pentecost became the moment that frightened men found their courage to proclaim the Good News, at all costs. Let us ask the Lord Jesus to send down His Spirit anew into our hearts, renew our fervor to speak of the things of God.
May God bless you.
