Homilies: Solemnity of Pentecost Sunday, Year C

My homily for the Solemnity of Pentecost, Year C. This was preached during my sabbatical leave at a location outside my usual preaching locations. This particular occasion was a 10am Mass.

The readings proclaimed were Acts 2:1-11; 1 Corinthians 12:3-7, 12-13; John 20:19-23. Today’s psalm is Psalm 103: “Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth.”

“In fulfilment of Jesus’ promise to his disciples, the Holy Spirit is to among them and they are able to speak in many different languages and so witness to the marvels of God to those who are in Jerusalem. The Spirit continues to be present in the Church, manifested in many different ways so that the Church – that is, us! – are able to continue to proclaim God’s marvels to the whole world.”
