Pentecost Sunday during the Day (B)

Official Translation

(I will clean up these readings later tonight, but I just wanted to get them out now.)

Reading 1 – Acts 2.1-11

1 Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 Suddenly there came from the sky a sound like the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 Tongues like fire appeared and were distributed to them, and one sat on each of them. 4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak. 5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under the sky. 6 When this sound was heard, the multitude came together, and were bewildered, because everyone heard them speaking in his own language. 7 They were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Behold, aren’t all these who speak Galileans? 8 How do we hear, everyone in our own native language? 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and people from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya around Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabians: we hear them speaking in our languages the mighty works of God!”

Responsorial – Psalm 104:1+24, 31+34, 29-30 Resp. 30

R. Lord, send out your Spirit; renew the face of the earth. or R. Alleluia!

Bless the Lord, my soul.
Lord, my God, you are very great.
O Lord, how many are your works!
The earth is full of your riches.

R. Lord, send out your Spirit; renew the face of the earth. or R. Alleluia!

Let the Lord’s glory endure forever.
Let the Lord rejoice in his works.
Let your meditation be sweet to him.
I will rejoice in the Lord.

R. Lord, send out your Spirit; renew the face of the earth. or R. Alleluia!

You take away their breath: they die,
and return to the dust.
You send out your Spirit and they are created.
You renew the face of the earth.

R. Lord, send out your Spirit; renew the face of the earth. or R. Alleluia!

Reading 2 – 1 Corinthians 12.3b-7, 12-13

Brothers and sisters:
No one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” but by the Holy Spirit. 4 Now there are various kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 There are various kinds of service, and the same Lord. 6 There are various kinds of workings, but the same God, who works all things in all. 7 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the profit of all.

For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all given to drink into one Spirit.

Or Galatians 5.16-25

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies, 21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,* 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let’s also walk by the Spirit.

Gospel – John 20.19-23

When therefore it was evening, on that day,
the first day of the week,
and when the doors were locked
where the disciples were assembled,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in the middle,
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, even so I send you.”
When he had said this,
he breathed on them, and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit!
Whosoever’s sins you forgive, are forgiven them.
Whosoever’s you retain are retained.”

Or John 15.26-27; 16.12-15

Jesus said to his disciples:
“When the Paraclete has come,
whom I will send to you from the Father,
the Spirit of truth,
who proceeds from the Father,
he will testify about me.
You will also testify,
because you have been
with me from the beginning.”

“I have yet many things to tell you,
but you cannot bear them now.
However when he, the Spirit of truth, has come,
he will guide you into all truth,
for he will not speak from himself;
but whatever he hears, he will speak.
He will declare to you things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
for he will take from what is mine,
and will declare it to you.
All things whatever the Father has are mine;
therefore I said that he takes of mine,
and will declare it to you.”
