PENATACOST SUNDAY WHICH FALLS ON 50 DAYS AFTER EASTER SUNDAY CELEBRATES THE DESCENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ON APOSTLES AS PRAYING WITH MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS AND OUR MOTHER.
CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
V. The Spirit and the Church In the Last Days
731 On the day of Pentecost when the seven weeks of Easter had come to an end, Christ’s Passover is fulfilled in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, manifested, given, and communicated as a divine person: of his fullness, Christ, the Lord, pours out the Spirit in abundance.122
732 On that day, the Holy Trinity is fully revealed. Since that day, the Kingdom announced by Christ has been open to those who believe in him: in the humility of the flesh and in faith, they already share in the communion of the Holy Trinity. By his coming, which never ceases, the Holy Spirit causes the world to enter into the “last days,” the time of the Church, the Kingdom already inherited though not yet consummated.
The Holy Spirit – God’s gift
