    A PRAYER TO THE SPIRIT

    Spirit of Jesus, poured out in flames of fire upon your

    disciples on the day of Pentecost,

    we pray to you: Set afire the hearts of your faithful

    so that they will announce in all the languages of the world

    the wonders of the salvation of God.

    --From Come, Lord Jesus by Lucien Deiss, CSSP

    Lord Jesus Christ, Redeemer of the world, you have shouldered the burden of our weakness and borne our sufferings in your own passion and death. Hear this prayer for our sick brothers and sister whom you have redeemed. Strengthen their hope of salvation and sustain them in body and soul, for you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

    God, our shelter and our strength, you listen in love to the cry of your people: hear the prayers we offer for our departed brothers and sisters. Cleanse them of their sins and grant them the fullness of redemption. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    REFLECTION ON THE WORD OF GOD The mystery of the Trinity refers to one God in three persons. We frequently acknowledge Jesus as “the second person of the Trinity,” but referring also to the Spirit as a “person” comes less naturally. In religious art, the Holy Spirit often ap- pears as a dove or, as in today’s reading from the Acts of the Apostles, tongues of fire. Much rarer are images of the Spirit as a “person” in recognizable human form. Today’s readings do not settle the issue of how to picture the Spirit, but they certainly give shape to the Spirit’s active power in the world and in each human heart. In Acts, the Spirit enables people to speak and understand a variety of languages. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians praises the Spirit for all kinds of spiritual gifts, services, and “workings.” Finally, in John’s Gospel, Jesus calls the Spirit our Advocate and our divine teacher. COME, HOLY SPIRIT As the Gospel of John depicts the Last Supper, Jesus leaves the disciples with these words before they rise from the table: “The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you every- thing and remind you of all that I told you” (John 14:26). Jesus knows that he will be arrested that very night. He knows the kind of death he will suffer the next day, Good Friday. We might think Jesus tells his disciples to watch for the coming of the Holy Spirit because he simply runs out of time to leave them complete instruc- tions about how to build the church. Rather, Jesus tells his disciples to look forward to the Spirit because the ongoing work of teaching and guiding is what the Spirit does best. The Advocate is not a hand-me-down re- placement for the risen Jesus; the Holy Spirit is fully God, with mysterious power to help us grow in holiness. COME TOGETHER Jesus speaks grandly of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. He promises that the Spirit will teach “everything.” Everything! Jesus’ words reveal the completeness of God’s plan. God, who could have chosen any method in the world to offer salvation to humanity, insists on acting as a unity of three persons in perfect complementarity. This is a profound and delightful mystery. We praise the one, undivided God, whose very existence is a communion. Contemplating God, we feel the awesome power of community. God prefers exist- ing in relationship, and so must we. We recognize the sacred call to interdependence. This glorious feast of Pentecost invites us to consider all the people we know—and maybe especially the ones we tend to fear, re- ject, ignore, or dread—and ask the Spirit to teach us how to form better relationships with them. Even if we have tried before and failed, we boldly ask again. As Jesus says, the Spirit teaches everything. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.

    9 tháng 6- Thánh Ephrem (306-373) Là nhà thơ, nhà giáo, nhà hùng biện và bảo vệ đức tin, Thánh Ephrem là người Syria duy nhất được xưng tụng là Tiến Sĩ Giáo Hội. Ngài tự mặc cho mình một trọng trách là chống với các học thuyết lầm lạc đang lan tràn vào thời ấy, và luôn luôn là người bảo vệ đức tin Công Giáo mạnh mẽ. Sinh ở Nisibis, Mesopotamia, Thánh Ephrem được rửa tội khi là thanh niên và nổi tiếng là một thầy giáo nơi quê của ngài. Khi hoàng đế nhượng lại phần đất Nisibis cho người Ba Tư, Ephrem cùng với các Kitô Hữu khác trốn sang Edessa (thuộc Thổ Nhĩ Kỳ ngày nay) để tị nạn. Ngài được cho là đã đem lại vinh dự lớn lao cho một trường kinh thánh ở đây. Ngài được phong chức phó tế nhưng không muốn làm linh mục. Ngài có tài sáng tác văn chương và các tác phẩm phản ảnh sự thánh thiện của ngài. Mặc dù không phải là một học giả vĩ đại, các văn bản của ngài cho thấy sự hiểu biết s
