1st Reading: Acts of the Apostles 2:1-11
2nd Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13
Gospel: John 20:19-23

​Today is Pentecost Sunday. In today's Gospel, the risen Lord gifted His troubled disciples with His peace: "Peace be with you." He also gifted His weak disciples with the Holy Spirit: "Receive the Holy Spirit." Let us ask the Lord today to give us peace and strength as we journey on in life. Our journey will not be a drag and a burden if we journey with the Holy Spirit, come what may.

"Come, Holy Spirit." This is a short but very powerful prayer. In times of trouble, confusion, temptation and pain, let us invoke the Holy Spirit and experience freedom, light and liberation within. When we acknowledge that we need help, and in humility reach out to God, then things fall into place, doors are opened, chains are broken, and we can move on. The power of God, through the Holy Spirit, is always there for us, but we must make the opening. Pentecost cannot happen in a heart that is closed, proud and unbending.

Sharing with you this beautiful prayer: "Lord, I do not understand how things will work out, but I trust in You. I don't see a way, but I know You will make a way. I have faith at this very moment that You are touching hearts, opening doors and lining up the right breaks and right opportunities. Things may look dark and bleak now, but I have faith that my dawn is coming,

In Jesus" name. Amen."

Fr. Dante
