Word for the Weekend - Pentecost: May 30/31

It's time to prepare for Pentecost Sunday!

With Pentecost comes the close of the Easter season.

There are a number of options for readings in the lectionary: for the vigil of Pentecost and for Pentecost day. All of those texts can be found here. The commentary at the St. Louis site focuses largely on the readings for Pentecost day as do the notes for helping children prepare to hear the Word as found on the Sadlier site.

To prepare to hear the texts that will be proclaimed in your parish, you would need to contact the parish and inquire which readings will be proclaimed and preached. If you're not inclined to make that call, just look over all the readings or ponder the graphic above (click to enlarge) and prayerfully wonder about the Holy Spirit in your own daily life...

In my parish we'll be hearing:

Acts 2:1-11
1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13
John 20:19-23
John 15:26-27; 16:12-15 (7:30 only)

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the readings - I will be reading and praying as the week progresses.


Please THINK before you write
and PRAY before you think!
