BREATHE ON ME
"All were filled with the Holy Spirit." —Acts 2:4

On this Pentecost Sunday, Jesus, Who is the same today as He was yesterday (Heb 13:8), is breathing on us and commanding us: "Receive the Holy Spirit" (Jn 20:22). To receive the Spirit and thereby a renewal of our Baptisms and Confirmations, we must repent, forgive, and be forgiven (see Acts 2:38; Mt 6:12; Jn 20:23). Then we will express ourselves "in foreign tongues and make bold proclamation as the Spirit" prompts us (Acts 2:4). We will see a miracle of unity. As the divisions between races, nations, spouses, family members, and church members break down (see Acts 2:8-11; 1 Cor 12:13), the world will believe that God the Father has sent Jesus as the Savior of the world (Jn 17:21). The Holy Spirit will renew the face of the earth (Ps 104:30).

Therefore, "come, Holy Spirit, come!...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" (Pentecost sequence). Come, Holy Spirit of Pentecost!

Prayer: Father, like Mary, may I visit others and bring to them the Holy Spirit and a new Pentecost (see Lk 1:39ff).

Promise: "No one can say: 'Jesus is Lord,' except in the Holy Spirit." —1 Cor 12:3

Praise: "When You send forth Your Spirit...You renew the face of the earth" (Ps 104:30).

END UP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
"Your business is to follow Me." —John 21:22

In today's Mass readings, we heard two conclusions, one from the Acts of the Apostles and the other from the Gospel of John.

As we read through Acts of the Apostles, we meet Saul of Tarsus, who brought many Christians to trial in chains (Acts 9:2). At the conclusion of Acts, Saul (now known as Paul), is himself a Christian (Acts 28:31) and is in chains (Acts 26:29) for his steadfast belief in Jesus, Whom he earlier persecuted (Acts 9:4). At the conclusion of John's Gospel, Jesus says to Peter, "Follow Me" (Jn 21:19). That's also what Jesus said to Peter (then Simon) at the very beginning (see Mk 1:17).

Thus we hear the endings of two stories, which echo each story's beginning. These endings are meant to launch us into a new beginning in our life in the Spirit. Jesus is "the Beginning and the End" (Rv 21:6), "the First and the Last" (Rv 1:17), the Master of all the beginnings and endings in our lives.

Tomorrow is the great feast of Pentecost, the beginning of the Church. Obey Jesus' command to "receive the Holy Spirit" (Jn 20:22). Begin by begging the Holy Spirit to be active in a new way in your life. Jesus has come to bring life to the full (Jn 10:10) to both yourself and to the world. Will you receive the Holy Spirit and use His gifts to renew the face of the earth? (Ps 104:30)

Prayer: Jesus, may I want to receive the Holy Spirit more than I want to take my next breath.

Promise: "The Lord is just, He loves just deeds; the upright shall see His face." —Ps 11:7

Praise: Jan spoke a prophecy at a prayer meeting that pierced Rhonda's heart and enabled her to surrender her fears to Jesus.

THROUGH JESUS TO THE SPIRIT
"They differed with him over issues in their own religion, and about a certain Jesus Who had died but Who Paul claimed is alive." —Acts 25:19

Imagine investing your entire life to run after a Man Whom you have never seen and Who claims to be God risen from the dead. This is the decision that each Christian makes. We have decided not just to go to Church, say some prayers, or live a decent life, but to throw ourselves at Jesus' feet, worship Him, deny our very selves, and follow Jesus even to the cross (see Lk 9:23). "We have become a spectacle to the universe, to angels and men alike. We are fools on Christ's account" (1 Cor 4:9-10).

As we draw near to Pentecost, let us repent of our sins and be immersed in the person of Jesus. Then we will receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). We must be baptized into repentance (Lk 3:3) and into Jesus before we can receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Mk 1:8). Because Jesus baptizes us in the Spirit, we must come to Him, believe in Him (Jn 7:37-38), and love Him with all our hearts to receive the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, come to Jesus — on His terms. He is "rejected by men but approved, nonetheless, and precious in God's eyes" (1 Pt 2:4). Come to Jesus, and the Spirit will come to you.

Prayer: Father, I accept Your grace to love You and Jesus with all my heart (see Mt 22:37). Come, Holy Spirit!

Promise: "When Jesus had finished speaking He said to him, 'Follow Me.' " —Jn 21:19

Praise: St. Charles Lwanga was burned at the stake on June 3, 1886. It was the Feast of the Ascension and his example inspired other persecuted Christians to refuse to deny their faith.

THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
"They are Your gift to Me." —John 17:24, RNAB

Jesus said that God the Father's gift to Him was twelve men (Jn 17:24). That very night, one of these twelve would betray Him (Mt 26:20-25, 47-50). His hand-picked leader would deny that he knew Him (Lk 22:57-60). All the rest, except St. John, would abandon Him (Mk 14:50). What a "gift"!

Yet Jesus loves these apostles so deeply that He truly considers them a great gift. Jesus sees them not just for who they currently are, but for who they will become in Him and in the Holy Spirit. Thanks be to God that He loves us as we are, but yet He loves us too much to leave us as we are.

Let us then receive God's gifts, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, on this seventh day of the Pentecost Novena. The gifts of the Holy Spirit have great power to penetrate hard human hearts. At our Confirmation, the Spirit gave gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord (Is 11:2-3). Additionally, the Spirit's gifts include prophecy, healing, ministry, teaching, exhortation, generosity, leadership, and praying in tongues (see 1 Cor 12:7-10; Rm 12:6-8). Each gift of the Spirit has great power and is given for the common good.

Receive and exercise the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Become even more of a true gift to the Lord.

Prayer: "And may the Son on us bestow the gifts that from the Spirit flow, the gifts that from the Spirit flow."

Promise: "I set the Lord ever before me; with Him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed." —Ps 16:8

Praise: Sts. Marcellinus & Peter were memorialized in a poem by Pope St. Damasus I and remembered in Eucharistic Prayer I

"THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH" (Jn 15:26)
"I consecrate Myself for their sakes now, that they may be consecrated in truth." —John 17:19

Today is the sixth day of the Pentecost Novena. Both the first reading and the Gospel reading are concerned with truth. St. Paul warns his disciples that men will distort the truth and attempt to lead them astray (Acts 20:30). Jesus likewise mentions in the Gospel reading that He has guarded His disciples and that they will need further protection (Jn 17:11-12). Jesus then consecrates Himself so that His disciples will be consecrated in truth (Jn 17:19).

The next day, Pontius Pilate asked Jesus, "What is truth?" (see Jn 18:38) The secular culture makes everything relative, in an attempt to obscure the truth and promote its own agenda. Yet the Scriptures are greatly concerned with revealing and preserving the truth. Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6). "The Spirit is Truth" (1 Jn 5:6). The Spirit will guide us to all truth (Jn 16:13). God's Word is Truth (Jn 17:17).

To a world with so much deceit, Jesus proclaims: "The reason why I came into the world is to testify to the truth. Anyone committed to the truth hears My voice" (Jn 18:37). The Church is "the pillar and bulwark of truth" (1 Tm 3:15). Immerse yourself in the Word of God and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. "Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free" (Jn 8:32).

Prayer: Father, You are so concerned about me following the truth that You sent Your Son and Spirit, and gave the Church to protect me from error. May I be as devoted to the truth as You are.

Promise: God "gives power and strength to His people. Blessed be God!" —Ps 68:36

Praise: St. Justin's First Apology, written about 150 AD, outlines the familiar format of the Mass. The essence of liturgical worship has not changed.
