A PENTECOST SEQUENCE
Come, oh Holy Spirit, come!
And make us ever more your own.
In flooded farmlands, send relief.
And where faith falters, send belief.
Where tornados maim and kill
Let us feel your presence still.
Touch the unemployed once more
With strength to find that open door.
And where assassins lurk and prey
Bring them to the light of day.
Touch our own hearts too, we pray
To see the ways we’ve turned away.
The blind eye cast, the hardened heart,
Help us, Spirit, see our part.
Renew the earth, renew us too!
In Jesus’ name, we beg of you.
In what ways can you sense the gifts of the Holy Spirit active in your life?

I have come to light a fire on the earth; how I wish it were already burning (Lk.12:49).
