Today is the Church’s birthday!
Over the last few weeks, Jesus died for us, rose from the dead, then ascended to Heaven.
This week, Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to help us. The Holy Spirit comes in the form of wind and fire. It is a bit scary but it gives us strength and confidence. It helps us to speak in different languages and to share our faith with people around the world.

Here in Luxembourg, especially in our English-speaking community, many people speak many different languages. This is a gift of the Holy Spirit.
We are the Church! We speak different languages, we come from different parts of the world, we share and celebrate a common faith. This is what makes us the Church. And this is why today – Pentecost Sunday – is the Church’s birthday.
