THE DAY OF PENTECOST – SUNDAY MAY 20th 2018  

                                                              (Whit Sunday)

INTENTION

Come, Holy Spirit!  Set our hearts afire in worship, and breathe your power and wisdom into our lives.

 

THE COLLECT

God, who as at this time taught the hearts of your faithful people
by sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit:
grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;
through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

 

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 561/564)

First Reading                                        Ezekiel 37:1-14

The Spirit of God breathes new life into those who have lost all hope, enabling them to hear God’s word and live.

 

Second reading                                 Acts 2:1-21

Joel’s prophecy helps Peter to understand the gifts of Pentecost: God’s Spirit empowers men and women to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations.

 

Gospel                                                  St. John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15

Jesus promises to send the Spirit of truth to all his followers, to help them interpret and apply his teaching in today’s world.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Faithful God, who fulfilled the promises of Easter
by sending us your Holy Spirit
and opening to every race and nation the way of life eternal:
open our lips by your Spirit, that every tongue may tell of your glory;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen
