Pentecost Sunday – Cycle B


Come, oh Holy Spirit, come!

Concerns have made our spirits numb.

With fruits of joy and love and peace

Give our anxious hearts release.

When we are sick of sin and Law

Stop us cold with grace and awe.

Hold us dumbstruck, draw us near.

Stay with us this coming year.

Help us see the world anew

And do the things that He would do.

The gentle word, the warm embrace,

Let those who see us see His face.

And help us work for justice, too,

And speak up when You ask us to.

With your sevenfold gifts descend

And help us fall in Love again.

Melt us, mold us, make us new.

Veni, Sancte Spiritu!

  1. Peace be with you is not something our culture hears very easily. Infact it is a life time struggle at best.Jesus gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit. What will you say when He asks you, have you opened my gift? PEACE BE WITH YOU!

  2. “Concerns have made our spirits numb” – – I believe these concerns, including “ministerial concerns” have made my spirit numb many times and I bless the Spirit for rescuing me. Even holy concerns can be distracting from the real. – Cris

  3. Ahh, Kathy….what beautiful words, that say so much. In this time of so much uncertainty and pain, we are indeed dependent on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Each of the gifts are inter-dependent on one another, but at this time in life I find myself praying for Wisdom, Counsel and Fortitude. I am most struck by the words:
    Let those who see us see His face.

    And help us work for justice, too,

    And speak up when You ask us to.
