The Church celebrates the descent of the Holy Ghost in tongues of fire on Pentecost. In this feast, the redemptive work of Jesus Christ is complete. God dwells within the hearts of men, renewing them to be like the Son, Jesus Christ, to the glory of the Father. Fr. Oldfield preaches on the indwelling Spirit and the how the fire of God’s love purifies us to love as we ought.
