PENTECOST SUNDAY

“The conception and birth of Jesus Christ are in fact the greatest work accomplished by the Holy Spirit in the history of creation and salvation…”
Pope John Paul II
The Holy Spirit in the Life of the Church and the World (#50)
“Creation is thus completed by the Incarnation and since that moment is permeated by the powers of the Redemption, powers which fill humanity and all creation.”
Pope John Paul II
The Holy Spirit in the Life of the Church and the World (#52)

“The Holy Spirit filled Mary with new life at the Annunciation, and Mary gave birth to Jesus. The Holy Spirit filled the Apostles with new life at Pentecost, and they immediately gave birth to a new era through their preaching and example.Turn the world toward Christ!” June 11, 2000, from a reflection given at the John Paul II Center.
Archbishop Charles Chaput, O.F.M. Cap

Come Holy Spirit, help us to comprehend with wonder that first moment of the Incarnation, help us to perceive and be part of that new era begun at Pentecost.
