Pentecost, the descent of the celestial fire

Pentecost

'Pentecost',
Jean Restout (1732)

'In the Christian tradition this heavenly fire is called the Holy Spirit, and the feast of Pentecost celebrates The coming of the Holy Spirit on Jesus’ disciples in the form of flames or tongues of fire. On that day they received the gifts of healing, prophecy and tongues, for the Holy Spirit never comes alone; he is always accompanied by angels and archangels, by a whole heavenly hierarchy, and by a host of servants of nature who make their dwelling in man in the form of gifts, talents and virtues. Visible fire is a material reflection of the invis­ible fire. This is why, every time we light a visible fire, we should remember to unite our souls and spirits to the celestial fire which is love, intelligence and power, which is in other words the Holy Spirit.'
