Today is Pentecost Sunday. This is the feast that celebrates when the Church was born. After Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross, he rose again from the dead and ascended into heaven. Ten days after Jesus went up to heaven, the Holy Spirit descended into the disciples amd followers of Jesus in the form of a strong wind and through tongues of fire.
These disciples changed after they received the Holy Spirit. After Jesus died, they ran away and hid themselves. When Jesus rose from the dead, they did not believe at first that he was indeed alive. After Jesus went up to heaven, they waited for him to come. Instead the Holy Spirit blessed them and became part of them. As a result, they became more courageous, witnessed for Jesus Christ, and even gave up their lives to spread the Gospel or Good News.
Like the disciples, we too can change. If we are fearful and unsure, like me, we can pray and ask God to bless us in our mission.
