Readings for the Week
5/20/2018 - 5/27/2018
Readings for Sunday, May 20:

Acts 2:1-11:   On this day the Holy Spirit in fiery tongues descended upon the apostles and the Mother of Jesus.  Today the law of grace and purification from sin was announced.  Three thousand were baptized. 

1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13:  No one can confess the divinity and sovereignty of Jesus unless inspired by the Holy Spirit.  Different gifts and ministries are given but all for the one body with Jesus. 

Jn 20:19-23:  Jesus breathes on the disciples to indicate the conferring of the Holy Spirit.  Here we see the origin  of power over sin, the Sacrament of Penance.  This shows the power of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of human beings. 

Today’s Message:  All of us have been baptized into one and the same Spirit; let us live, then, by the Spirit!  That same Spirit, the Advocate, who “renews the face of the earth”, was given as gift to the disciples.
