June 21, 2004 Tweflth Sunday in Ordinary Time: Cycle C
July 25, 2004 Seventeeth Sunday in Ordinary Time

FIRST READING:

Act 2: 1-11"They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak different languages."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 104 "Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth."

or

"Alleluia"

SECOND READING:

1 Cor. 12: 3-7, 12-13 "In the one Spirit we were all baptized making one body. Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as citizens."

SEQUENCE:

"Come, O Spirit, from on high!"

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

"Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful; and kindle in them the fire of your love."

GOSPEL:

Jn. 20: 19-23 "As the Father sent me, so I send you. Receive the Holy Spirit."

scriptural topics: Holy Spirit, language, ministry, Church, peace

FOCUS: "As the Father sent me, so I send you. Receive the Holy Spirit."

REFLECTION:

You are reward to the saints,

Comforter of souls,

Light in the darkness,

Riches to the poor,

Treasure to lovers,

Food for the hungry,

Comfort to the wanderer;

In all, you are the One who loves.

from Saint Mary Magdalen dei Pazzi

"There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I've always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic."

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"Those who are led by the Holy Spirit have true ideas; that is why so many ignorant people are wiser than the learned. The Holy Spirit is light and strength."

St. John Vianney

"Life is the strength to act. Spiritual life is the strength to act spiritually, according to the will of God. Man has lost this strength; therefore until it is restored to him, he cannot live spiritually, no matter how much he intends to. That is why the flow of grace into the soul of a believer is essential for a true Christian life. True Christian life is the life of grace. A man makes some religious resolution: but in order to be able to act according to it, it is necessary that grace be united with his spirit. When this union is present, moral strength, hitherto evident only temporarily in his first enthusiasm, is impressed on his spirit and remains there always. This re-establishment of ...the moral strength of the spirit is effected by the regenerating action of baptism, through which man is granted justification and the strength to act after God in righteousness and true holiness."

  Theophane the Recluse

"You are the fire that ever bruns without being consumed; you consume in your heat all the soul's self-love; you are the fire which takes away the cold; with your light you illuminate me so that I may know all your truth. Clothe me, clothe me with your eternal truth, so that I may live this mortal life in the light of your most holy faith."

St Catherine of Siena

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: The forming of the Spirit-filled church is celebrated in glory. Invitations to prayer could focus on the Spirit being the medium that delivers the Father.

Sample General Intercessions:

Introduction My sisters and brothers, God our Father wants all people to be saved and calls us through the Holy Spirit to know the truth that Jesus' commandment to love one another as he loved us is the Way to God . Let us pray to God with all our hearts:

• For the holy Church of God: that the Spirit guide and protect it;

• For all peoples of the world: that the Holy Spirit unite them in peace and harmony;

• For ourselves and our community, that the Holy Spirit guide us in the direction of love.

• Infinite and everlasting God, bestow upon our clergy and our congregation thy incomparable Grace, that we may be of benefit to others. We pray through Our Lord, Jesus Christ, whom thou didst send to teach us how to love like You do, with infinite and everlasting purity.

Faith Formation

Pentecost marks the end of the entire paschal cycle: Lent, Holy Week, Eastertime. Reflect on the period from Ash Wednesday to Pentecost Sunday. What did you learn?

Song suggestions (see next page):

Veni, Sancte Spiritus

O Holy Spirit, by Whose Breath

O Holy Spirit, Enter In

Children's Liturgy of the Word

How are people different while at the same time similar? Tie this into the celebration of Pentecost when people from different nationalities converged for a shared experience.

The Holy Spirit made it possible for people of all languages to understand what was spoken.

How does the church function like this, with many nationalities converging in prayer, with a common gospel perspective?
