Pentecost Sunday Year C

Published on 13 May 2016
Tongues of fire descend upon the apostles

Let us pray in the Spirit who dwells within us.
Father of light, from whom every good gift comes,
send your Spirit into our lives with the power of a mighty wind,
and by the flame of your wisdom open the horizons of our mind.
Loosen our tongues to sing your praise
in words beyond the power of speech, for without your Spirit
man could never raise his voice in words of peace
or announce the truth that Jesus is Lord.

The Spirit of the Lord has filled the whole world.
Entrance Antiphon

Come, thou Father of the poor, Come with treasures that endure;
Come, thou light of all that live! Sequence for Pentecost

‘What the Spirit brings is … love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5: 22

God our Father, let the Spirit you sent on your Church to begin
the teaching of the Gospel continue to work in the world
through the hearts of all believers. Old Opening Prayer

Overcome with Paschal joy, every land, every people exults in
your praise. Preface
