Reflection Corner: BLESSED PENTECOST

“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 they were filled. And there appeared to them tongues of fire, distributed and resting one each of them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance “ ( Acts 2: 2-4)

Reflection: As we celebrate this great feast day, perhaps we should ask ourselves how we are exercising the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Are we spreading the Gospel and continuing the work of Christ within our families, our Church, our school, our communities and our world? Let us use this time to ask God to fill us anew with the Holy Spirit so that our lives may be truly become witnesses to His Gospel.
