Today’s reading gives us a clue as to what the experience of the first Pentecost meant. Jesus comes to his closest followers who had deserted him to bring them a peace which is not just a calming of hearts and conscience, but the surety of heart which will enable and embolden them to go out and preach the gospel to the ends of the earth.
