The Solemnity of Pentecost
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today the Church celebrates the great solemnity of Pentecost, the decisive moment when the Holy Spirit came upon Mary and the apostles, fulfilling Jesus’ promise of sending the Spirit of Truth. It is probably somehow difficult for most of us to understand what our relationship with the Holy Spirit is supposed to look like. In one sense it is easier to imagine our relationship with the Father and with the Son. But, how do we “look at” the Holy Spirit? How do we speak to Him? Where do we find Him?
