On the spur of the moment, I did a Google video search under the world "Pentecost". The first video up was this:
The experience of an Eskimo Anglican parish in Alaska in 1999.
What struck me and added a sense of authenticity to it is that the word that several witnesses used of the impact was "humbling" and the desire to ask for purity and cleansing of the heart. Be sure and watch to the end.
(And before you even go there - no, I am not trying to make the case that this is what Catholic Masses should be like.)
I'm just wondering at the mysterious and wonderful way God works with people. If he filled Cornelius with the Holy Spirit before he was baptized, surely he can visit a small group of Anglican Eskimos in a surprising way.
The humble heart is one that God loves to dwell in. What, I wonder, has been the long term fruit, because that is always the test.
