WE ARE SENT
At the very heart of the great feast of Pentecost is the fact that we are sent to proclaim the Good News to the world. Thus, Pentecost is considered the birthday of the Church.
What we have been given is a vision, but it is up to us to create a mission that guides us as to how each one of us will contribute to the overall mission.
However, we do not have to figure this out all by ourselves; for this, we have the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit has always been hard to define, but it is best described as the wind and a flame. Notice how unpredictable these both are. The same is also true for us – we we give our lives over the Holy Spirit, we lose control.
What happens then? Well, you will just have to tune in.
