The apostles loved Jesus. Their intentions were golden. These earnest men had learned a great
deal by being with Our Lord, and it was their desire to continue His life-saving mission. But they
were too feeble. In the case of the earliest Church leaders, it wasn't physical strength they needed, it
was the courage, the love, and the power to do all that Jesus had commissioned them to do. Now,
in the upper room, Christ keeps his last promise to his beloved friends and sends them the Holy Spirit. The apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit and utterly transfigured. This historic moment wasn't just a radical turning point in the lives the apostles, it was the birth of the Church. Furthermore, ever since that moment, every human being has had the opportunity to share in God's Divine life through the Spirit. The power Pentecost unleashed on the world was tsunamic in the best way possible.
Again and again, the Catechism of the Catholic Church refers to the action of the Holy Spirit: He
animates all creation, awakens faith, enables communication with Christ, helps man grow in spiritual
freedom, is the master and source of prayer, is the principal author of Scripture and so on. The
Catechism also highlights the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1831), His fruits (1832), and His charisms
(2003). It is breathtaking to think that, at the moment of our baptisms, the third Person of the Trinity
comes to dwell in us and bestows supernatural gifts upon us. If we cooperate with the movement of
the Spirit in our lives and in our souls, we will receive whatever we need to grow in holiness and
minister to those around us. He wants to empower us. The apostles, who desired the Holy Spirit,
awaited Him eagerly, and responded whole-heartedly to His inspirations, are models for us to imitate.
