FAITH BOOK
PENTECOST -A- May 31, 2020

Acts 2: 1-11; Ps. 104; Romans 8: 8-17; John 20: 19-23

By: Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Acts of the Apostles reading:

 

And they were filled with the Holy Spirit

and began to speak in different tongues

as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.

Reflection:

Jesus is no longer physically present with us, but he has not withdrawn to some distant mountain in the cosmos, waiting for his time to return. The scriptures today remind us that Jesus is fully with us because his Spirit dwells in us – as individuals and as a church community. Empowered by the Spirit we "proclaim" our faith in Christ by our words and actions.

So we ask ourselves:

  • How is my faith affected by the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life?
  • With the Holy Spirit, how can I be a more public witness to my faith?
