Come Holy Spirit
On the Day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles: on that day, the Church was born, the Body of Christ began to grow and develop into the fullness that must belong to it at the end of time. Pentecost marks the beginning of the work and activity of the Holy Spirit before His departure, Jesus promised that He would not leave us orphans. In His stead He would send the Paraclete, the Comforter, who would teach and remind us of all things. It is the same Holy Spirit that guides the Church on her earthly pilgrimage on earth to the perfected Church in Heaven at the end of time. The work and activity of the Holy Spirit comes in various ways, some like a powerful wind from heaven, others quiet, mysterious, secret unfolding in stages of our lives. At every moment of our lives not just at Pentecost let us ask the Holy Spirit to guide us. With this in mind we pray, Veni Sancte Spiritus, Come Holy Spirit!
