Pentecost is the celebration of the person of the Holy Spirit coming upon the Apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Jesus, who were gathered together in the Upper Room.
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. – Acts 2
What does this mean to us as Catholic on this amazing feast day? As Pope Benedict points out that the Jesus who has risen and ascended into Heaven, sent us, his Spirit to the Church and every Christian so that in our life we can participate in Jesus divine life and be valid witness in the world.
The Holy Spirit, breaking into history, defeats aridity, opens hearts to hope, stimulates and fosters in us an interior maturity in our relationship with God and with our neighbor. – Pope Benedict, 2012
