Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth. — Psalm 104:(see 30)
Mass readings: Vigil: Genesis 11:1-9 or Exodus 19:3-8,16-20 or Ezekiel 37:1-14 or Joel 3:1-5 / Romans 8:22-27 / John 7:37-39; Day: Acts 2:1-11 / 1 Corinthians 12:3-7,12-13 or Galatians 5:16-25 / John 20:19-23 or John 15:26-27;16:12-15
Today we celebrate Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came and the Church was born. The promised Holy Spirit descended upon praying, waiting disciples gathered in one place. Fearful hearts set free spoke God’s message boldly and were understood by people of a variety of languages.
Human beings seek to unify by uniformity, but the Spirit creates unity from diversity: one message proclaimed and understood in many languages; different gifts for unique contributions to one Body of Christ. Different gifts from one Spirit, different ministries from one Lord, and different workings from one God all come together to build the Kingdom of God.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, increase our awareness and appreciation of Your creative, unifying work in Your Church.
