each one heard them speaking in his own language

“Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem. At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd, but they were confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language.” (ACTS 2: 5-6)

A dream of every one—to be understood, listening to someone who is “speaking in his own language”; how often in our conversations we can hear: “I didn’t mention it,” “No, it is not true,” “You don’t understand,” etc. The Holy Spirit helps us to understand and to be understood because He leads us to be a gift of selves, He helps us to serve and kindles in us “the fire of your love.”

“Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.” (Gospel Acclamation)
