Pope Francis spoke of the power of the Holy Spirit in his May 20, 2018, Pentecost homily at St. Peter’s Basilica.
“He is the divine force that changes the world,” the Pope reminded the congregation. “The Spirit enters into situations and transforms them. He changes hearts and he changes situations.”
Referring to the day’s readings from Acts and John, the Holy Father spoke of how fearful the disciples were – even after the resurrection. But they received the power of the Holy Spirit, which enabled them to carry out their mission to carry the word of God to the ends of the earth.
