Pentecost is among the four major holidays in the Christian year. On Christmas, there is much pomp and circumstance; on Good Friday there are special traditional services; Easter is the Great Halleluiah! On Pentecost, we greet the descent of the Holy Spirit with a kind of silence rather than the joyful shouts so deserved.
Everything is different because now the Holy Spirit has come upon us through Jesus, who died and rose from the dead and is now living at the right hand of God and sends forth his Spirit upon us. The more we reflect on that, we are drawn into the joy of the message of Jesus.
