Joel lived about 400 years before the time of Christ and foretold of a time when God would pour out His spirit upon all mankind. At the first Christian Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came upon Christ's disciples, Peter declared that Joel's prophecy had begun.
Joel 3:1
Acts 2:17

Feast of St. Joel:  October 19
