May 19th and 20th, 2018
✙ Pentecost Sunday

Sunday Readings for May 20th , 2018

       PENTECOST SAW THE BIRTH of a new community, the Church. This is the day the apostles left the upper room, where they had been hiding for fear of the Jews, and went out fearlessly to preach the Gospel to the world. They could not have done this if they had not received “power from on high”, that is, the Holy Spirit. We too need the Holy Spirit in order to live as Christians.
        Lord Jesus, you send the Holy Spirit to heal the wounds caused by sin and division. Lord, have mercy.
        You send the Holy Spiritto bind us together in ties of love. Christ, have mercy.
        You send the Holy Spirit to guide us into the fullness of truth. Lord, have mercy.

Be Guided by the Spirit of God

Do not let yourselves be guided by the spirit of selfindulgence.
Look at the legacy self-indulgence produces: bad temper,
fighting, jealousy, cruelty, meanness, revenge, fornication,
idolatry and drunkenness. These are ugly things, and make
life miserable.
Rather, let yourself be guided by the Spirit of God.
Look at the legacy the Spirit brings: love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
These are beautiful things and they make life joyful. They are
a foretaste of the joy of heaven.
Spirit of the living God, fall afresh upon us.

      Pentecost Sunday is one of the most ancient feasts of the Church, celebrated early enough to be mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles and St. Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians. It supplants the Jewish feast of Pentecost, which took place 50 days after the Passover and which celebrated the sealing of the Old Covenant on Mount Sinai.
