Pentecost

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator, come from thy bright heavenly throne,
come, take possession of our souls, and make them all thine own.
 
Thou who art called the Paraclete, best gift of God above,
the living spring, the living fire, sweet unction and true love. 

O guide our minds with thy blest light, with love our hearts inflame;
and with thy strength, which ne’er decays confirm our mortal frame.

St Andrew Gloria:           Glory to God in the highest,  

The 1st Reading: Act of the Apostles     2:1-11
Psalm 103:          
Send forth your spirit Lord! Send your Spirit, renew the earth,
Send forth your Spirit Lord, renew the face of the earth.  

 Bless the Lord, my soul!   Lord God, how great you are!  
How many are your works,  O Lord,
The earth is full,  the earth is full, the earth is full of your riches.
Send forth your spirit Lord! Send your Spirit, renew the earth,
Send forth your Spirit Lord, renew the face of the earth.         

 You take back your spirit, they die,  return to the dust whence they came.
You send your spirit, create them all, and so you renew, 
and so you renew,  renew the face of the earth.
Send forth your spirit Lord! Send your Spirit, renew the earth,
Send forth your Spirit Lord, renew the face of the earth.

 Reading II: 1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13

 Gospel Acclamation:  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Come, Holy Spirit, fill all faithful hearts, kindle in them the fire of love.  Come, Holy Spirit, come! Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

 Gospel: John 20:19-23

 Preparation of Gifts: as people  bring down the gifts of bread and wine we sing:

 Veni, veni, Sancte Spiritus. Veni, veni, Sancte Spiritus.

Spirit hov’ring o’er the waters, when the world from chaos began,
Living Spirit, recreate us! Come, restore our hearts with life. Veni . . . . .

 Spirit speaking through the prophets when they cried for justice and peace,
Living Spirit, come renew us, fill the earth with peace and love. Veni, veni. . . ..

 Spirit hovering o’er apostles, wind and fire of Pentecost Day,
Living Spirit, now confirm us;  come inspire us, come, we pray. Veni …

Memorial: Christ has died                           
Lamb of God . . . . .

 Communion:  Father, I pray for them: May they be one in us,
so that the world may believe it was you who sent me;  It was you who sent me.

 Seed, scattered and sown, wheat, gathered and grown,
bread, broken and shared as one, the Living Bread of God. . . . . . .

Pope Benedict’s recent Communications Sunday message urged Catholics to embrace the digital age and the realm of social networking while being ever aware of its risks. He wrote: “I would like to invite Christians, confidently and with an informed and responsible creativity, to join the network of relationships which the digital era has made possible. This is not simply to satisfy the desire to be present, but because this network is an integral part of human life.”  If you use Facebook and/or Twitter please consider following the daily feeds from the Archdiocese –Both Facebook and Twitter feeds can be joined with one click – at no cost – from the Archdiocesan home page – www.rcag.org.uk
