READ: The Holy Spirit des cends upon the apostles like a strong wind and in the form of tongues of fire. His coming cannot be ignored. He is here to declare to the people coming from the different places that the apostles are enabled to evangelize them in their own languages.
REFLECT: The Spirit enables us to see beyond race, gender, social status and religion. He can unite us all who are dif ferent from one another. The Spirit comes as Jesus pro mised before his ascension. It may well be helpful if you recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in your heart and in the people who interact with you with love and devotion. Awareness of his presence among us lead us to renew ourselves and to respect and care for one another. Nobody monopolizes the Holy Spirit.
PRAY: Lord, help me feel the presence of the Holy Spirit within me. Help me also re cognize his presence in other people who fear you. Give me the courage, wisdom and strength to communicate the good news to other people and to be one always with my fellow believers.
ACT: Help build your commu nity. Recognize their gifted ness. Get involved in the new evangelization.
