Pentecost Sunday

Holy Spirit, we thank You for unending grace. We pray that You grant us the gift of piety, so that we may serve You with never-ending enthusiasm. Grant us the gift of strength, so that we may courageously overcome the trials of life. Grant us the gift of counsel, so that we can grow in spirit. And grant us the gift of understanding and wisdom, so that we may rightly direct all our actions to serve You better. Amen


Jesus stood up and exclaimed,
“Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink.
As Scripture says:
Rivers of living water will flow from within him who believes in me.”

He said this in reference to the Spirit
that those who came to believe in him were to receive.
There was, of course, no Spirit yet,
because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
