  • PENTECOST 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Acts 2:1-11

    When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled,
    they were all in one place together.
    And suddenly there came from the sky
    a noise like a strong driving wind,
    and it filled the entire house in which they were.
    Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,
    which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
    And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
    and began to speak in different tongues,
    as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.

    Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem.
    At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd,
    but they were confused
    because each one heard them speaking in his own language.
    They were astounded, and in amazement they asked,
    "Are not all these people who are speaking Galileans?
    Then how does each of us hear them in his native language?
    We are Parthians, Medes, and Elamites,
    inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia,
    Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
    Egypt and the districts of Libya near Cyrene,
    as well as travelers from Rome,
    both Jews and converts to Judaism, Cretans and Arabs,
    yet we hear them speaking in our own tongues
    of the mighty acts of God."

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Ps 104:1, 24, 29-30, 31, 34

    R. (cf. 30) Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    Bless the LORD, O my soul!
    O LORD, my God, you are great indeed!
    How manifold are your works, O LORD!
    the earth is full of your creatures;
    R. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    May the glory of the LORD endure forever;
    may the LORD be glad in his works!
    Pleasing to him be my theme;
    I will be glad in the LORD.
    R. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.
    If you take away their breath, they perish
    and return to their dust.
    When you send forth your spirit, they are created,
    and you renew the face of the earth.
    R. Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.
    or:
    R. Alleluia.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13

    Brothers and sisters:
    No one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.

    There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
    there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
    there are different workings but the same God
    who produces all of them in everyone.
    To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
    is given for some benefit.

    As a body is one though it has many parts,
    and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body,
    so also Christ.
    For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body,
    whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons,
    and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 20:19-23

    On the evening of that first day of the week,
    when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
    for fear of the Jews,
    Jesus came and stood in their midst
    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, so I send you."
    And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
    "Receive the Holy Spirit.
    Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
    and whose sins you retain are retained."

  • PENTECOST VIGIL 2015:

    Easter Time.

    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Genesis 11:1-9

    The whole world spoke the same language, using the same words.
    While the people were migrating in the east,
    they came upon a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there.
    They said to one another,
    “Come, let us mold bricks and harden them with fire.”
    They used bricks for stone, and bitumen for mortar.
    Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city
    and a tower with its top in the sky,
    and so make a name for ourselves;
    otherwise we shall be scattered all over the earth.”

    The LORD came down to see the city and the tower
    that the people had built.
    Then the LORD said: “If now, while they are one people,
    all speaking the same language,
    they have started to do this,
    nothing will later stop them from doing whatever they presume to do.
    Let us then go down there and confuse their language,
    so that one will not understand what another says.”
    Thus the LORD scattered them from there all over the earth,
    and they stopped building the city.
    That is why it was called Babel,
    because there the LORD confused the speech of all the world.
    It was from that place that he scattered them all over the earth.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    Psalms 104:1-2

    R. (cf. 30) Lord, send out your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.

    SECOND LECTURE OF THE MASS

    Romans 8:22-27

    Brothers and sisters:
    We know that all creation is groaning in labor pains even until now;
    and not only that, but we ourselves,
    who have the firstfruits of the Spirit,
    we also groan within ourselves
    as we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.
    For in hope we were saved.
    Now hope that sees is not hope.
    For who hopes for what one sees?
    But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait with endurance.

    In the same way, the Spirit too comes to the aid of our weakness;
    for we do not know how to pray as we ought,
    but the Spirit himself intercedes with inexpressible groanings.
    And the one who searches hearts
    knows what is the intention of the Spirit,
    because he intercedes for the holy ones
    according to God’s will.

    Gospel Acclamation

    R. Alleluia, alleluia.
    Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful
    and kindle in them the fire of your love.
    R. Alleluia, alleluia.

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    John 7:37-39

    On the last and greatest day of the feast,
    Jesus stood up and exclaimed,
    “Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink.
    As Scripture says:
    Rivers of living water will flow from within him who believes in me.”

    He said this in reference to the Spirit
    that those who came to believe in him were to receive.
    There was, of course, no Spirit yet,
    because Jesus had not yet been glorified.
