Thought for the day: It is often forgotten that Pentecost is first of all a Jewish feast, actually a harvest festival. That sense of “in gathering” is also a theme of our Christian Pentecost, as we see the beginning of the church. By the time of Jesus, Shavuot, to give it its Hebrew name, also marked the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai. This also fits our Christian Shavuot as long as we recall that Law, Torah, meant instruction and indeed a whole way of life under God’s grace and guidance. It was always interior and the descent of the Holy Spirit takes this inner reality to new levels. Prayer: Send, O Father, the Holy Spirit of your Son into our lives and communities. May the joy we know in the Spirit help us to be joyful bearers of the Good News to our contemporaries.

Pope Francis on X: May Our Lady of Fatima guide our path of conversion and penance so that we may encounter Christ, the sun of justice. Let us pray together that the gentle light of the Lord may free us from all evil and dispel the darkness of this world tormented by wars.
