Pentecost: A Spectacular Start to Spreading Jesus' Word

May 15, 2016

By: The Reverend Thomas Rosa

Father Thomas Rosa shares with us a vision of Pentecost, as exciting as any Hollywood blockbuster. As we grow in our faith, the Holy Spirit plants and nurtures in us the qualities of Jesus, transforming anyone who is faithful into a reflection of Christ.

The Scripture references are Genesis 11:1-9 and Acts 2:1-21. The Gospel reference is John 14:8-17.
