PENTECOST   -B-    May 23, 2021

Acts 2: 1-11; Ps. 104; I Cor 12: 3b-7, 12-13; 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 suddenly there came from the sky

a noise like a strong driving wind,

and it filled the entire house in which they were.

 

Reflection:

 

Difficult situations like peacemaking, forgiving, working tirelessly for the poor and the work of justice, require what Acts tells us about the Spirit: it is with us like a “strong driving wind,” and gifts us with language – just what we Christians need for the long haul in a sometimes-resistant church and world.

 

So, we ask ourselves:  

 

  • What difficult challenges am I facing for which I need energy from the Spirit?

  • In difficult situations do I call on the Holy Spirit for help?
