From the Desk of Fr. Mark - Our Pastor
May 28, 2023 - Solemnity of Pentecost Sunday

"'But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.'
When Jesus had said this, as they were looking on, he was lifted up,
and a cloud took him from their sight.
While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going,
suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them.
They said, 'Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky?'"

Come Holy Spirit, come! And from your celestial home shed a ray of light divine!

Come, Father of the poor! Come, source of all our store! Come, within our bosoms shine.

You, of comforters the best; You, the soul’s most welcome guest; sweet refreshment here below;

In our labor, rest most sweet; Grateful coolness in the heat; solace in the midst of woe.

O most blessed Light divine, shine within these hearts of yours, and our inmost being fill!

Where you are not, we have naught, nothing good in deed or thought, nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew; On our dryness pour your dew; wash the stains of guilt away.

Bend the stubborn heart and will, melt the frozen warm the chill; guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful, who adore and confess you, evermore in your sevenfold gift descend;

Give them virtue’s sure reward; Give them your salvation, Lord; Give them joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia.

Come Holy Spirit, come!
