On Sunday, May 15, the church celebrates the Pentecost. This occurs roughly 50 days (pente) from Jesus’ resurrection. As the disciples were waiting in Jerusalem, they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This allowed them to share the Gospel of Jesus in languages which were not their own. They also received God’s power, boldness and courage to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ The Pentecost is also known as the birth of the Church. (Acts 2:1-4).
