UVOD U ČITANJA—INTRODUCTION
I Pedeset dana nakon Uskrsa Duh Sveti silazi na apostole. Oni navješćuju evanđelje i svi ih razumiju. To je početak Crkve. Fifty days after Easter the Holy Spirit descends over the Apostles and they announce the Good New that all can understand. The Church begins.
II Duh Sveti nam daruje život koji nije po zakonu tijela več nas čini djecom božjom. The Holy Spirit is giver of divine life by which we become God’s children.
III Isus predaje svoga Duha apostolima i daje im vlast da otpuštaju grijehe. Jesus shares his Spirit with the apostles and gives them the authority to forgive sins.
UZ MISNA ČITANJA
Pedesetnica dolazi od grčke riječi pentekost što je pedeset. Dakle, pedeset dana nakon Gospodinova Uskrsnuća. Povezuje se sa židovskim 7x7+1 nakon blagdana Pashe. (v. Br 28,26; Pnz 16,9; 16,16). Broj sedam u biblijskom govoru izražava savršenstvo i dovršenje. Prema tome sedam puta sedam je najviše savršenstvo. Prema drevnim crkvenim piscima iz 3. i 4. stoljeća vrijeme od pedeset označava neodjeljiv vremenski prostor ili trajnost Uskrsa. Ono se zaokružuje sa Sv. Duhom, ili Duhovima, koji je bio obečan i poslan od Gospodina prije i nakon uskrsnuća. Pedesetnica je dakle svetkovina Duha Svetoga. To je rođendan Crkve. Od tada Duh Sveti silazi na nas ljude počevši od BDM i Apostola. Djela Apostolska nam govore da su apostoli puni Duha svetoga govorili tako da su ih svi razumjeli. Mnogi su se dali krstiti te su primili Duha Svetoga. To je znak da je Duh Sveti poslan svima a ne samo Židovima i da Crkva Božju Riječ i spasenje treba donijeti svim ljudima i narodima a nas snagom Božjeg Duha učvrstiti u vjeri i osnažiti da navještamo Božju Radosnu vijest i životom svjedočimo Krista. Dpustimo da duh Božji od nas učini nova stvorenja. Prepustimo se milosnom Djelovanju Duha Svetoga, prihvatimo njegove darove kako bi postali hrabri, zreli i istinski vjernici.

REFLECTION ON READINGS
Pentecost comes from Greek word and means fifty. Fifty is biblical term for fulfillment of time. It is made of 7 by 7 plus one. Seven is again biblical term for perfect and completion. Seven by seven is therefore supreme perfection for total completion. Day after 49 days means new time. There are fifty days since Passover, or Easter, when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles. By the Holy Spirit the Apostles were encouraged to preach the Good New to multitude of people who had no problem to understand them. Many got baptized and received the Holy Spirit. It means that the Holy Spirit and salvation is not only for the Jewish, but for all who believe and follow Christ. On Pentecost begins the life of the Church. She is called to bring the Good News to all people and witness the life of Christ. Let the Holy Spirit come to us and enrich us with His holy gifts that we too might be courageous and mature Christians.
