Pentecost is the last day of the season of Easter. It directly follows the Feast of the Ascension which mark’s Christ’s ascension into heaven after His fifty days walking on earth as a resurrected being. The Pentecost marks the descent of the Holy Spirit unto the Apostles and unto us. This is the season in which we celebrate our intimate personal relationship with God and our perpetual opportunity for the forgiveness of sins. We become intentional about prayer, study, contemplation, and the receipt of divine inspiration.  Pentecost is the celebration leading into the season where we own our eternity, where we align our world with God’s will. When we live a linear calendar, we’re on our way to dying; when we live the circular Liturgical calendar, we ascend into deeper relationship with God.
