Pentecost Sunday is celebrated 50 days after Easter. It represents the birth of our Church. We have been on a pilgrimage with Jesus since February. During Lent, we walked through the dessert by fasting and repenting our sins. We were welcomed into Holy Week with Palm Branches on Palm Sunday. During Holy Week we relived the last few days of Jesus’ life. Easter Sunday arrived and we were joyful as we celebrated Jesus’ resurrection.
Pentecost calls us to a missionary life. Jesus gave his disciples a job to go out and proclaim the Good News of our Lord to all nations. We are Jesus’ new disciples. We have been called and chosen to use our gifts and talents to lead others to God. Our challenge is the same as the disciples ... do we have the courage to reach out to others and share the peace of the Holy Spirit?
