Pentecost

Pentecost



Acts 2:1-11. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth – Psalm 103(104):1, 24, 29-31, 34. 1 Corinthians 12:3-7, 12-13. John 20:19-23.

‘Receive the Holy Spirit . . . ’

After Jesus was taken up to Heaven, the Apostles, Mary, and other women and men gathered to pray together. They knew they needed the Holy Spirit, promised by Jesus, to begin the difficult task of giving witness to the reign of God. Today, we continue to pray:

Jesus,

send us your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth. You know our strengths and weaknesses. Transform us into messengers of your Gospel for those who yearn for you.

Jesus,

send us your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth. You know our history, with its beautiful and painful experiences. Help us to be untiring promoters of a society based on love, justice and peace.

Jesus,

send us your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth. You know our longing for love and community. Make us instruments of unity and service, especially for those who are weak and those who are lonely.

Amen

Sweet unction and true love.

Thou who art sevenfold in Thy grace,

Finger of God’s right hand;

His promise, teaching little ones

To speak and understand.

O guide our minds with Thy blest light,

With love our hearts inflame;


And with Thy strength, which ne’er decays,

Confirm our mortal frame.

Far from us drive our deadly foe;

True peace unto us bring;

And through all perils lead us safe

Beneath Thy sacred wing.

Through Thee may we the Father know,

Through…
