Focus on the Sunday Gospel with Our Weekly Liturgy Lesson - Solemnity of Pentecost.
Use this Weekly Liturgy Lesson - Solemnity of Pentecost (Cycle B) to help children understand that Jesus wants us to receive the Holy Spirit. The inspiration for this lesson is Christ's words in the Gospel of St. John 20:19-23.
Today's Holy Gospel reminds us that the Holy Spirit comes to all who believe and follow Jesus. Christ wants us to receive the Holy Spirit. On Pentecost Sunday, the Catholic Church celebrates the Holy Spirit’s descent upon Christ’s disciples. Observed fifty days after Easter, Pentecost is often called the "Birthday of the Church." As disciples of Christ, Catholics first receive the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Baptism. Later, in the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit pours out God’s love and increases and strengthens the seven gifts first given to each person at baptism.
