Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle in them the fire of your love.
The Holy Spirit radically transformed the Apostles
who out of fear had locked themselves into the Upper Room,
making them fervent heralds of the Gospel. Down through the ages,
the Spirit continues to support the Church in her evangelizing mission,
raising up in every age courageous witnesses to the faith.
(Pope John Paul II, Pentecost Homily, 19 May 2002)
