Today, we reach the end of the Great Fifty Days of Easter.
Our reading is from the 2nd chapter of the Acts of the Apostles.
In this passage, the Holy Spirit comes upon the Apostles, resting upon them like tongues of flame and giving them the ability to speak to the faithful from many lands who were assembled in Jerusalem for the Feast of First Fruits (Jewish Pentecost), seven weeks after the Passover.
