Pentecote-2022

The mystery of Sanctification by the Holy Spirit

God the Father has raised man to the supernatural order and called him to holiness. The Redemption of fallen man is the work of God the Son. Lastly, our sanctification is attributed to God the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of holiness in essence. Thus the three divine Persons each have Their role in the work of our salvation.

The third part of the Liturgical Year, the cycle of Pentecost, will therefore symbolize the reign of the Holy Spirit, in the Church of Christ and in the soul of each faithful.

What Christ has founded, the Holy Spirit seals and vivifies.

The Church is the Mystical Body, of which Christ is the Head: “For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, being all in particular members one of another.” (Romans 12:4-5) But of this mystical Body of Christ, the Holy Spirit is its soul: “What the soul is in the body, the Holy Spirit is in the Body of Christ, that is, the Church.” (Saint Augustine)

This acquisition of the Church by the third Person of the Most Holy Trinity was inaugurated on the day of Pentecost by the visible and marvelous outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles.

The reign of the Holy Spirit continues through the doctrinal infallibility which He assures to the teaching Church, through the efficacy which He gives to the Sacraments and through the propagation of the Faith, which He fecundates throughout the world until the end of time. May all mankind, in its march towards its destiny, taste what is right, through the light and virtue of the divine Comforter, the only guarantee of true happiness!

The vivifying action of the Holy Spirit in the soul of each faithful soul is carried out by the effusion of grace and the communication of His gifts. If grace is the fruit of the infinite merits of Christ, it is the Holy Spirit who applies it to us by His action, which is as multiple as it is varied: “The love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:5)

The Feast of Easter represented our birth into the life of grace through Baptism or Penance. The Feast of Pentecost represents our Confirmation into the supernatural life through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in our souls.

This last period of the Ecclesiastical Year thus recalls especially the great dogma of the Mystical Body of Christ, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Members of this Mystical Body, temples of the Holy Spirit, let us be faithful sons of our Mother the Holy Church, let us appreciate our happiness and dignity as Christians, and let us love one another, for “you are all one in Christ” (Galatians 3:28).

The Holy Spirit, is sent to us by God the Father,
at the prayer of Jesus Christ

And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Paraclete, that He may abide with you for ever: the Spirit of truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you will know Him, because He will dwell with you and be in you.” (S. John 14:16-17) This prayer of Jesus was fully answered on the 50th day after His Resurrection, on the Day of Pentecost, when God the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles gathered in the Cenacle and communicated to them in a marvelous way the abundance of His graces and gifts.

The Feast of Pentecost is the crowning achievement of the Feast of Easter, because the mission of the Holy Spirit was the confirmation and completion of the work of Christ.

Pentecost is rightly the anniversary of the birth of the Church. From that moment on, the Church, founded by Christ, but fertilized by the anointing of the Paraclete Spirit, takes its rise and will spread in all countries and among all nations. This is why, during the Octave of Pentecost, the Epistle reading will be taken from the Acts of the Apostles, which tells of the origins of the early Church.

After the Resurrection, Pentecost is the greatest feast of the Ecclesiastical Year. Therefore, it has its own privileged Vigil and Octave. During this Octave, the Church puts on red vestments, because this color reminds us of tongues of fire; it also symbolizes the fire of divine love with which the soul of each believer must be enkindled, as well as the testimony of blood, which, following the example of the Apostles, each of us must be ready to give to the Gospel by the virtue of the Holy Spirit.
