“The Antiphons of the Psalms … [remind] us of the experience of the disciples in the Upper Room: ‘On the day of Pentecost they were all together in one place’ (Antiphon 1). ‘There appeared to the Apostles what seemed like tongues of fire, and the Holy Spirit came upon each of them’ (Antiphon 2).
I hope that the spirituality of Pentecost will spread in the Church as a renewed incentive to prayer, holiness, communion and proclamation.”
Blessed John Paul II
