This occurrence marked the inception of the Church, and it led to the conversion of thousands of individuals.
Responsorial Psalm – Psalm 104: A psalm of praise to God for His greatness and His manifold works on earth. The response “Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth” highlights the power of God’s spirit to create and renew all things.
