TUESDAY IN WHITSUN WEEK
The Liturgical Year
Dom Prosper Gueranger 1870
Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of thy faithful, and enkindle within them the fire of thy love.
Yesterday, we were admiring the work of the Holy Ghost, whereby He drew mankind to the faith and name of Jesus, to Whom all power was given in heaven and in earth (St. Matt. xxviii. 18). The instruments used for this conquest were the Apostles and their immediate successors. The Tongue of Fire was victorious, and the Prince of this world was defeated. Let us continue our reflections, and see the further workings of the Holy Spirit for the glory of the Son of God, Who had sent him into the world.
