They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:4)
Today we celebrate the great feast of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit is traditionally referred to as the third member of the Blessed Trinity and is manifested in the love shared between the Father and Son and all of humanity. On this day the apostles were filled with the love of God and empowered to go out and share that great love with others.
The Holy Spirit continues to guide us in love and wants us to experience this love. As we live this day let us do so knowing that God’s perfect love is there for us – all we have to do is ask. Let the Spirit fill you with a deeper sense of peace and a greater appreciation for Jesus. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide and protect us in the days ahead!
“Come, Holy Spirit, and fill me with God’s love.”
