Before Jesus went back to heaven, he gave the apostles the command to go out to all the world and preach the good news. He promised them that he would not leave them alone and sent his Spirit to be with them. This is what we celebrate on Pentecost – the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the followers of Jesus. It takes place 50 days after Easter. This year the feast is on May 31.
The Holy Spirit is with us today and gives us the gifts we need to go out and tell others about the God’s limitless goodness, love and mercy.
Happy Feast !
