“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.
Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.”

(Acts of the Apostles 2:1-4 NRSV)

On this Solemnity, the Society of the Priest of Saint Sulpice prays for a “new Pentecost” in our times. May we be filled once more with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and be inspired to undertook the “new evangelization.”
