Called through the Word to the everlasting journey in the Spirit

Second Reading: First Corinthians 12:3-7, 12-13
Gospel: John 20:19-23


When you send forth your spirit, they are created; and you renew the face of the ground (NRSV, Ps 104:30).

Let us pray.


Father, you send us your Holy Spirit not just in moments of special need, for the accomplishment of a particular mission, but always in every time and place to every person.

Your Spirit is sent through the Word, now made flesh in our Lord Jesus Christ, who challenges us, even from the womb, to accept, in the Spirit, your gift of divine life.

That challenge, which is a defining element of our humanity, is made in every situation, not only that we may accept the gift of the Holy Spirit, but that we may grow constantly in the Spirit who is your life in us.

Father, may we always accept the Holy Spirit into our lives that we too may be created and renewed in every moment.

Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
