The Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world

Pentecost continues into June with an octave (or it used to have an octave) as this is such a big feast. We seem to have done away with an octave for many big feasts, but I intend to celebrate the Holy Spirit in a special way during the octave and maybe until the 11th of June when we have our community retreat. I think it will be by zoom, but I am asking the Holy Spirit to prepare us this year. The retreat ends the 18th and we celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart on the 19th of June this year.

The entrance antiphon for yesterday's feast of Pentecost tell us,
"The Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world..." And the love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Spirit of God dwelling within us, alleluia!
Each of us has received the Holy Spirit in Baptism and we need to develop a real relationship with this Spirit who is always with us, within us, to help us.
