Fifty days after Jesus’ Resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles who were gathered in the Upper Room along with Mary, Jesus’ mother, and other women who were his disciples. The Spirit came to rest upon each of them as tongues of fire.
Prayer: Come, Holy Spirit, reign within our hearts! Purify us and refine us! Empower us and use us! Live within us as You prepare us for our heavenly groom. Amen.
