Preparation of the worldwide Pentecost celebration.

We invite members to reflect on 3 questions related to the reading of the Gospel of Sunday May 31st.

The Gospel

(Jn 20:19-23)

On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

The questions

– How has the Holy Spirit brought about peace in your place ?

– In your place, how do relate peace to mercy that calls for the  forgiveness of sins ?

– How has the Holy Spirit helped you to increase in your faith like Thomas ?

– What is the one language that the Holy Spirit has taught us during this global pandemic?  E.g. The one language that “we are interconnected.”
