Amazement and joy greet the risen Lord in today’s gospel as we conclude our fifty day meditation on the meanings of the resurrection. The gifts of the Spirit bring peace to Jesus’ disciples, and the mission to extend his reconciliation, the fruit of his wounds. The piercing of Christ’s side released the Spirit; now he breathes on them as sign of its conferral. The Church is to take on his task as reconciler. The account of the Spirit’s coming in Acts recalls God’s appearance on Mount Sinai in wind and fire; as all can understand God’s message, the conflict symbolized by the Tower of Babel is ended. Paul reminds the Corinthians, who were noted speakers in tongues, that all who confess Christ do so only under the Spirit’s inspiration. Each has a gift to put at the community’s service. Neglecting these gifts endangers the Church’s unity. As the disciples’ fear gave way before Jesus’ appearing, so must our fear be replaced by joy at the Spirit’s surprising work. We are renewed; it is wonderful to see!
