                                                                      Homily for June 12, 2011: Pentecost Sunday

Q: What is the meaning of the word "Pentecost?

A: "Pentecost" is the seventh Sunday after Easter, commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples.

July 12, 2015 - 7th Sunday After Pentecost

Mark tells two stories in one—a “present-time” story and a “flashback.” The “present-time” story recounts Herod hearing about Jesus and deciding he must be John the Baptist raised from the dead. The "flashback" is the story of the Herod's order to have John the Baptist beheaded.              (Mark 6:14-29)
