“Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans … yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues of the mighty acts of God.” (Acts 2:7.11)
The miracle of “hearing” or of “speaking”? “We hear them speaking in our own tongues.” Theology says that this miracle consisted in speaking. “Speaking in our own tongues of the mighty acts of God”. God gave them the new tongue, a new ability – to proclaim His presence among us.
Today, on Pentecost Sunday, we are asking God to send us the people who will speak in our own tongue about the mighty acts of God. We are surrounded by too much information about what happened in the world; today we need preachers, neighbors, colleagues, fathers and mothers, and friends, who will speak “in our own tongue of the mighty acts of God.”
“Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of you love.” (Alleluia versus)
