Sunday, May 28, is Pentecost. We celebrate the Holy Spirit coming upon the Apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Jesus. Pentecost Sunday concludes the Easter season and celebrates the birth of the Church.

In the following audio podcast, Friar Michael Lasky shows us how to move forward as Easter ends: we prepare for Pentecost and the gift of the Holy Spirit, ready to live as witnesses to the hope of Jesus. Thank you for Franciscan Voice your ministry. 

Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit
and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord.
