FROM OUR EDITORS—May 19, 2024 – Pentecost Sunday

Para la versión en español, haga clic aquí.

Every year, Easter Time seems to fly by faster than ever. One week, our churches are full of spring-blooming lilies in soft pastel colors, and before you know it, the altars are draped in the fiery reds and bright oranges that evoke the fire of the Holy Spirit and that seem to signal the coming of summer.

To us, the action of the Holy Spirit might seem to happen in the blink of an eye: a moment of inspiration, the Baptism of a baby. But that is merely our human perception of the Spirit’s work, which is happening all around us at all times and in all places. Jesus assures us that the Holy Spirit, the Advocate, remains with us always. As we prepare to settle into the slower pace of summer, let’s use this time to stop each day and reflect on those Holy Spirit moments and thank God for the Spirit’s presence, whether we are aware of it or not.

Plan to celebrate World Children’s Day on May 25–26! Find additional resources here.
