One of the songs we're practicing for Pentecost is a musical setting of a poem by an Anglican divine of centuries past. The poet imagined the sun and stars looking down on Pentecost day, seeing "twelve stars" shining more brightly than the sun. Most depictions of Pentecost in icons and art offer the same image of the "twelve." But Scripture says there were ten times that many believers "gathered in one place" when the Spirit came: 120!
Pray for an ample outpouring of the Spirit in Chicago as new priests are ordained for the Archdiocese. (New deacons coming tomorrow.)
