Father’s Commentary

Pentecost Sunday

Today, the Church celebrates Pentecost Sunday; the day the Church was born; the day the Holy Spirit came down like tongues of fire on the disciples and the Blessed Mother. In the Acts of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit allowed the disciples to speak in tongues; while in the Gospel, it is associated with the Sacrament of confession conferred on the apostles. Jesus breathed the Holy Spirit upon them. Paul reminds us in 1Corinthians that there are varieties of gifts but the same one spirit. Because of our baptism, we are imbued with the fruits of the spirit – love joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Even with all this, Saint Paul (1Cor. 13) reminds us that the greatest gift of the Holy Spirit is love, for love never ceases or ends. On this day of Pentecost, let us put on the armor of God’s charitable love in our hearts, minds and bodies; and let us be courageous witnesses to Jesus in our families, neighborhoods and the world.
