The Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world!
Today we celebrate the great solemnity of Pentecost, which brings the Easter season to a close. Today we ask for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit, for the grace of repentance, for the courage and strength to go out into the whole world and proclaim the Good News! We pray that all Christians--and all people of good will--will experience today the blessings of the Spirit in the way God chooses to manifest himself to them. May you receive all the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit to enrich you and guide you on the way to God!
