Feast of Pentecost 

On Pentecost, fifty days after Easter, the Holy Spirit descended in power and filled to overflowing the apostles and other witnesses to the Resurrection. A tradition in the East joins this experience to the story of the Tower of Babel, as told in this ancient hymn:

When the Most High confounded the tongues,
he dispersed the nations:
but when he distributed the tongues of life,
he called all men to unity
