PARISH LIFE NOTES
THE FEAST OF PENTECOST. “Let us with one mind be incited to pay reverence to Whitsuntide, rejoicing in honor of the Holy Spirit, by whom the whole catholic Church is sanctified, and every rational soul quickened. He is the inspirer of the faith, the teacher of knowledge, the fount of love, the seal of chastity, and the cause of all power. Let the minds of the faithful rejoice, that throughout the world one God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, is praised by the confession of all tongues, and that that sign of his presence, which appeared in the likeness of fire, is still perpetuated in his work and gift. For the Spirit of truth himself makes the house of his glory shine with the brightness of his light, and will have nothing dark nor lukewarm in his temple.” (St. Leo the Great A.D. 400-461)
