Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday is one of the most ancient feasts of the Church, 

celebrated early enough to be mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles (20:16)

 and St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians (16:8). 

It supplants the Jewish feast of Pentecost, which took place 50 days 

after the Passover and which celebrated the sealing of the Old Covenant on Mount Sinai.

Pope Francis speaks



The need to mature in life like fine wine:

 

The pope tells a story of being in an airport 

and seeing an older, very well-known, successful 

businessman waiting at baggage claim. He said it's

 common to see young people be impatient, but it 

came as a surprise to see an older gentleman get 

"infuriated because his bag was late."

"It made me sad to see a person who wasn't able 

to enjoy the wisdom of old age. Instead of improving 

(with age) like a fine wine, he had gone sour like a 

wine gone bad."

 


 

And you, the stars of the heavens, O bless the Lord" (Daniel 3).
While there are many representations of the Southern Cross, this is a modern interpretation, particular to the Catholic Church in Aotearoa New Zealand. It speaks of us
