Do you know the meaning of Pentecost? What really happened that these frightened disciples suddenly felt the courage to proclaim loyalty to him whom the Roman establishment had just murdered. Could these disciples have finally realized that Jesus had actually risen from the dead? Oh! not physically, but in its real spiritual meaning. AMAZING! The same man who had died (witness the wounds, the same voice and message) had risen. Now , he was breathing on them (symbolic of God’s Spirit). Remember in Genesis God breathing the world into creation. In today’s gospel, Jesus sends us now officially to create in his Spirit a new world: a world of justice, truth, and compassion. Let’s make this viral time a moment of decision to inspire all whom we touch.
