Pentecost

Thomas Turner has a particularly insightful post today on Pentecost, over at Everyday Liturgy. Here’s an excerpt:

We often forget that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ. This being so, when we are filled with the Spirit we are filled with Christ: we become Christ’s presence in a dramatic and powerful way. The flaming tongues, a dramatic sign of the filling of the Spirit too often dwarfs takes the focus off of the way that the filling of the Spirit empowers people to speak God’s Word to their local communities.
