In this episode of the Catholic Link podcast, Fr. Rob discusses the feast of Pentecost. Fr. Rob identifies how Pentecost is the only Jewish feast that is on the Catholic Liturgical Year Calendar.

Listen to the previous episode where Fr. Rob discussed a way to meditate on the Book of Revelation. Some people read Revelation and try to map world history or current events onto what they read. Fr. Rob proposes another meditation of the book. He suggests that we read Revelation as a foretaste of the Heavenly Liturgy that the Saints and angels participate in. Further, in the book, the Risen Christ is aware of the events in his Church. So, we can take courage and peace knowing that Christ knows and is in control of what is happening now. Lastly, yes, the Book of Revelation contains information about the End Times. Fr. Rob proposes that we focus less so on what is happening around us that may signal the End Times. Rather, he suggests we reflect on the mystery that the world will end and all will be fulfilled in Christ with his glory.

Some of the important Jewish feast days also include: the Feast of Booths, the Day of Atonement, and Hanukkah, which commemorates the rededication of the Temple after the Jews drove out Hellenistic rule and as described in the book of Maccabees. Fr. Rob then discusses how Pentecost is, yes, the birthday of the Church, but it is still fundamentally a harvest festival. In the Old Testament, Pentecost celebrated the grain harvest that grew from February or March. In the New Covenant, the celebration is a harvest of the people. The Acts of the Apostles describes many different people understand the Apostles speaking Galilean in their native tongue. This symbolizes the Church beginning to harvest souls from all corners of the Earth. Finally, Fr. Rob invites all of us to participate in that harvest and praying to the Holy Spirit to help one’s own evangelization efforts and build a fruitful harvest for the Lord.
