Sunday School Updates–2022-2023–Week Forty-Four–“Pentecost”

For Parents To Teach To Their Children

Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022


“On the day of Pentecost, the Apostles received the Holy Spirit. He freed them from their fears and they were able to speak about Jesus. Some 3,000 people gathered all around them that day and were baptized. This first assembly of believers became the Church. …Christians celebrate Pentecost as the birth of the Church.

My painting is inspired by a picture of “…a stained glass representation of the Holy Spirit as a dove from St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, circa 1660, by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Public Domain, U.S.A.). The final image (immediately above) of Mary and the Apostles at Pentecost, by Fidelis Schabet, 1867.” Source:

This is a watercolor painting on watercolor paper. I also used colored ink, a black fine point Sharpie, and a gold solid tempera stick for highlighting.

Our Reading–USCCB, “Act’s of the Apostles, Chapter 2:1-13”

“When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
they were all in one place together.
And suddenly there came from the sky
a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in different tongues,
as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven
staying in Jerusalem.
At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
but they were confused
because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
‘Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
as well as travelers from Rome,
both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
of the mighty acts of God.’”
