Immersed in Christ: Pentecost Sunday: May 23, 2021
We are Sent
“As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” John 20:21
“They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim…” Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful…
“Tongues as of fire… came to rest on each one of them…” “Peace be with you… Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them…” And enkindle in us the fire of your divine love.
“No one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit… To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the good of all.” Lord, send forth your Spirit, and our hearts will be regenerated.
“‘As the Father has sent me, so I send you’… In one Spirit we were all baptized into one body… and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.” And you will renew the face of the earth!
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
Enkindle in us the fire of your divine love.
Send forth your Spirit, Lord, and our hearts will be regenerated. And you will renew the face of the earth!
God, by the light of the Holy Spirit, you instruct the hearts of the faithful.
Grant us by the Gifts of Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel, Family Spirit, Courage and Awe of the Lord
That we may not be conformed to this world,
But transformed by the renewal of our minds,
So that we might discern what is good, and acceptable to God, and perfect;
And so be the aroma of Christ in the world
through Love, Joy, Peace, Patient Endurance, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and the Self Control of total surrender to God.
PRACTICE: Say this prayer every day. Live it.
