A new Pentecost

May 13, 2018
Archbishop Paul S. Coakley

Pentecost is the birthday of the Church. As I write this column in anticipation of Pentecost Sunday, I have been reflecting on the presence and power of the Holy Spirit who has been bringing forth such abundant fruit in the life of this local church. We have been blessed in so many ways!

On this great feast, which concludes the Easter Season, we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and those disciples who had gathered in prayer after Jesus’ Ascension into heaven.

En esta gran fiesta, que concluye el tiempo de Pascua, celebramos el derramamiento del Espíritu Santo sobre los Apóstoles y aquellos discípulos que se habían reunido en oración después de la Ascensión de Jesús al cielo.
