FIRST READING

A reading of the Acts ofthe Apostles (2:1-11)

When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,they were all in one place together. And suddenly there came from the sky anoise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which theywere. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came torest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the holy Spirit andbegan to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd, but they were confused becauseeach one heard them speaking in his own language. They were astounded, and inamazement they asked, «Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?Then how does each of us hear them in his own native language? We areParthians, Medes, and Elamites, inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea andCappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the districts ofLibya near Cyrene, as well as travelers from Rome, both Jews and converts toJudaism, Cretans and Arabs, yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues of themighty acts of God.»

The Word of God.

Thanks be to God.

 

PSALM

Psalm 103

R. The earth is filled with your Spirit, OLord!

Bless the Lord, my soul!

Lord, my God, you aregreat indeed!

How varied are yourworks, Lord!

The earth is full ofyour creatures. R.

 

You take away theirbreath, they perish

and return to the dust.

Send forth your spirit,they are created

and you renew the faceof the earth. R.

 

May the glory of theLord endure forever;

may the Lord be glad inhis works!

May my meditation bepleasing to him;

I will rejoice in theLord. R.

 

EPISTLE                                          

The first letter of saint Paul to theCorinthians (12:1-11)

In regard to spiritualgifts, brothers, I do not want you to be unaware. You know how, when you werepagans, you were constantly attracted and led away to mute idols. Therefore, Itell you that nobody speaking by the spirit of God says, «Jesus be accursed.»And no one can say, «Jesus is Lord,» except by the holy Spirit. There aredifferent kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are differentforms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the sameGod who produces all of them in everyone. To each individual the manifestationof the Spirit is given for some benefit. To one is given through the Spirit theexpression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to thesame Spirit;d to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healingby the one Spirit; to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to anotherdiscernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to anotherinterpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributingthem individually to each person as he wishes.

The Word of God.

Thanks be to God.

 

Hallelujah

Come, Holy Spirit,

fill the hearts of yourfaithful

and kindle in them thefire of your love.

Hallelujah

 

GOSPEL

The Lord be with you

And also with you

 

A reading of the holygospel according to John (14:15-20)

Glory to you, Lord.

In that time, The Lord Jesus said to hisdisciples: «If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask theFather, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spiritof truth, which the world cannot accept, because it neither sees nor knows it.But you know it, because it remains with you, and will be in you. I will notleave you orphans; I will come to you. In a little while the world will nolonger see me, but you will see me, because I live and you will live. On thatday you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you.»

The word of the Lord.

Praise to you, LordJesus Christ.

 

AFTER THE GOSPEL

When I show my holiness among you - says the Lord - I will gatheryou among the nations and I will give you a new heart, hallelujah.
