“Jesus said to them again, ‘Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you.’ And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.’” – John 20:21-22
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
During this week of Pentecost, renew your commitment to silent prayer each day so that, like the first disciples, we may be able to recognize the breath of God, the Holy Spirit.
“Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may be holy.
Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work too may be holy.
Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love what is holy.
Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy.
Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.” – St. Augustine
