Description

5. Tuesday, Seventh week of Easter:

When Saul of Tarsus was converted on the road to Damascus [Acts 9:1-17], he was blinded by the light from heaven that flashed around him and threw him to the ground. God sent Ananias to him, who laid his hands on Saul and said,
“Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on your way here, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Saul’s sight was restored, and he was baptized in the name of Jesus, whom had had been persecuting. Overcoming multiple dangers, difficulties and even imprisonments, Paul walked in the light of that Spirit for several decades, as he brought the Good News of Jesus Christ to the Gentile world of the first century.

God calls us also to be heralds of the Good News, and gives us the same Holy Spirit. At our baptism, like Paul, we also received the Spirit’s gift of COURAGE, enabling us to face adversities of every sort. Paul was on fire with the love of God, and would stop at nothing to nurture the communities under his care. God continues to renew the church through the gifts of the Spirit. We can be the instruments God uses today, if we open our minds and our hearts to receive the energizing, transforming radiance of the Holy Spirit.

Come Fount of Life, come Fire of Love, come Sweet anointing from above. Lift us up and give us eyes to see You, hearts to embrace You, and COURAGE to serve You faithfully, in Jesus name, we pray. Pray the Pentecost Sequence

Pentecost Sequence

Come O Holy Spirit, come and from your celestial home, shed a ray of Light divine.
Come, O Father of the poor; come, O Giver of all gifts; come within our hearts now shine.

You, of comforters the best, You, the soul’s most welcome Guest, sweet refreshment here below.
In our labor, rest most sweet; grateful coolness in the heat; solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine, may that Light within us shine and our inmost being fill.
In your absence, we have naught, nothing good in deed or thought, nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew; on our dryness pour your dew; wash the stains of guilt away.
Bend the stubborn heart and will; melt the frozen, warm the chill, guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who adore and confess you evermore, in your seven-fold gifts descend.
Give them virtue’s sure reward, give them your salvation, Lord, give them joys that never end.
Amen. Alleluia.
