At the end of this morning’s gospel the Easter candle is extinguished and returns to its position by the font. We now put our focus on the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, empowering people’s lives with the new life of the risen Jesus, with joy, peace and love. Do look out for those who have remembered to wear something red today symbolising the tongues of flame coming upon the people of God. Happy Pentecost!
