 Pentecost 2023

Suddenly there was a noise from heaven like the sound of a mighty wind! It filled the house where they were meeting. Then they saw what looked like fiery tongues moving in all directions, and a tongue came and settled on each person there. The Holy Spirit took control of everyone, and they began speaking whatever languages the Spirit let them speak. (Acts 2, 2-4)

As the Easter season draws to a close with the Solemnity of Pentecost, we take a moment to reflect. Gathered in the Upper Room, the place where the Last Supper had taken place, Mary and the disciples did what the Lord had ordered them to Wait here for the Father to give you the Holy Spirit  (Acts 1:4). Can you imagine what questions filled their hearts? What uncertainties weighed them down? What fears surrounded them while they waited?

And suddenly a strong wind blew and tongues of fire appeared above them as the Holy Spirit came! The one that Jesus had promised; The one they had waited for; The Comforter, the Counselor, the Advocate arrives. Everything changes. Peter confidently begins to preach to the assembled crowds and around 3,000 people are converted and baptized. The Apostles go out to do mighty works and miracles, bringing people to faith and spreading the Gospel. They are no longer filled with fear and doubt, but boldly stepped out with power. The Apostles had been with Jesus for three years, they had heard his teachings, they had seen his miracles, but it was the filling of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost that made the difference.

Jesus himself said: "But I tell you I am going to do what is best for you. This is why I am going away. The Holy Spirit cannot come to help you until I leave. But after I am gone, I will send the Spirit to you." (Jn 16,7). It is better that Jesus leaves so that the Holy Spirit can fill us. But do we know the Holy Spirit? Do we give it freedom to move in our life? The Holy Spirit wants to fill us as he did with the disciples on that first Pentecost. He wants to equip us to be his witnesses in the world. He wants to guide us, comfort us and convince us. That is why we pray: «Come, Holy Spirit! Come and fill my life with your divine presence! Come, arouse and renew a true encounter with Christ…».
