Mary on Pentecost

I've mentioned before Mary's title "Spouse of the Holy Spirit" in a previous post. The Blessed Mother had an intimate relationship with the Spirit of God.

On the day of Pentecost, which the Church celebrates today, she was certainly the first to recognize the sound of that rushing wind. I imagine the disciples turning to her, "Is this the Paraclete our Lord promised?" then the flame appeared and she spoke in tongues.

Yes, Mary was a tongue-talking Charismatic!

She is not just the Spouse of the Holy Spirit, but the Mother of the Church.
Happy Mother's Day!
