Sunday Gospel Primer – May 23, 2021

Pentecost means “fiftieth”.

  • For Christians, Pentecost is the plentitude of God’s gift to humanity celebrated 7 weeks after Jesus’ final Passover, the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the community of believers given to us in order to transform us by His Love and to lead us back to God.
