“Heavenly King, Advocate, Spirit of Truth, Who are everywhere present and fill all things, Treasury of Blessings and Bestower of Life, come, and dwell within us; cleanse us of all that defiles us, and, O Good One, save our souls.”
The Holy Spirit is God’s Special Gift for the Christian. Jesus said in Luke 11:13, “How much More shall your Heavenly Father Give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him.” Receiving Jesus will give you Power to be a Child of God. On this festive day we decorate our homes and churches traditionally with green branches of trees and flowers; this is to remind us that the feast of the Pentecost, Holy Trinity, and especially - Holy Spirit is the feast of eternal life. We must strive to embellish our hearts and souls to receive the power of the Spirit of God. Let us cleanse our souls through repentance and prayer, let us fill our souls with the love of our neighbors and with charitable deeds. Then the Holy Spirit will dwell in us. Receiving the Holy Spirit will give you Power to serve Christ and His Church by being His Anointed Witness. Let us reach out as
part of the Catholic Church with arms open wide in faith, and say...
“Yes Lord, I take what you give, Fill me with the Holy Spirit!”
