Pentecost


After Jesus had ascended to heaven from Mt. Olivet, the apostles and disciples returned to the Holy City. They remained together in the Upper Room or Cenacle, the place where Jesus had appeared to them and which may well be called the first Christian church. About a hundred and twenty persons were assembled there. They chose Matthias as an apostle in place of the unhappy Judas; they prayed and waited for the Paraclete.

Ten days had passed, it was Sunday, the seventh Sunday after the resurrection. At about nine o'clock in the morning, as they were together praying fervently, the Holy Spirit descended upon them. Note how all the great theophanies in Christ's life occurred during the course of prayer. After His baptism, for instance, when Jesus was praying the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove; likewise, it was during prayer at night that the transfiguration took place on Tabor. Surely too it was while Mary was praying that Gabriel delivered his message, and the Holy Spirit overshadowed her. Pentecost followed precedent. The small community of Christians had prepared themselves through prayer for the coming of the Paraclete. The same is true at Mass today, every day; through prayer we ready our souls for the advent of the Spirit. 

The descent upon the apostles was internal and invisible in nature although accompanied by certain visible phenomena. There came a mighty roar, like the onrush of a violent wind. It came suddenly, from heaven; but unlike storms that strike a structure from without, this one penetrated and filled the room where the disciples were gathered. Therefore it was not a natural wind, it was a miracle peculiar to the occasion. A second visible sign consisted in tongues of fire that descended upon each one present. These fiery tongues gave visible evidence that the Holy Spirit had descended upon them.

Today at Mass, particularly at holy Communion, the power of the Holy Spirit will come down upon us; fiery tongues will not be seen, but invisible tongues of fire will not be absent. There was still another external manifestation of the Holy Spirit; the apostles and disciples were enabled to speak various languages.

The Sunday TV Mass

Do you know someone who can't get to Mass? Since 1952 , the Archdiocese of Washington has produced a

weekly televised Mass for those who are homebound, broadcast from the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the

National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It is a wonderful ministry for those members of our Catholic family

who are unable to be physically present with a local worshiping community for the Sunday Eucharistic Liturgy.

The Mass airs every Sunday at 10:30am on WDCW-50:

  • No cable; Dish or DIRECTV subscribers: Ch. 50
  • Comcast: Ch 23 in Washington, DC and Montgomery County: Ch. 3 
    in
     Prince George's County and Southern Maryland
  • RCN: Ch. 15
  • Verizon: Ch. 3
 

                                                                           

Do you know the qualifications to be a God parent?


 1) Be a registered Parishioner.  2) Have received all the sacraments of initiation.  3) Are a practicing Catholic (coming to Mass).  4) Attend a baptism preparation class.
            This also applies to someone who has been asked to be a Godparent from another parish.

 

  

  

  

 
If you are being admitted or have been admitted to the hospital and would like to receive Communion, please contact the rectory or have a family member contact the rectory with your name, the hospital, the room number and anticipated length of stay.  This way, either a priest or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion can provide you with the sacrament.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St. John the Evangelist, Apostle; John 1:1-5).
