How can the Word spread to the ends of the earth if its hearers can’t even understand the language? The Holy Spirit is about to take care of that.

The Holy Spirit’s first gift was understanding through shared language.

Read the following daily readings to deepen your understanding of Sunday’s text. After the reading, ask the question, how does the Holy Spirit’s light explode in the new world?

The early leaders of the faithful had an ever-growing task on their hands: to keep adding to the numbers of converted while trying to reconcile the old customs with the new message. Opinions are strong, and the young church faces one among many threats of division.

 

There are many things that can divide a church today, yet many more that can unite us.
