Pentecost. It’s the Church’s Birthday! Yet, for many of us, it is simply another Sunday. What we don’t realize is that 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. This Day of Prayer offers us an opportunity to celebrate Pentecost with music, prayer, reflection and the sharing of the Precious Gift of the Holy Spirit. The day concludes with liturgy and prayers for a new empowering of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Alleluia! Glory to God!
