Readings for Sunday May 20, 2018

Readings for this Sunday
First Reading: Acts 2:1-21
Second Reading: Romans 8:22-27 
Gospel: John 15:26-27; 16:4b-15
(New feature: Click the verse to read it now.)

On the fiftieth day of Easter we celebrate the Spirit, through whom and in whom the people of God are created and re-created. Pentecost is sometimes called the church’s birthday, but might more appropriately be called its baptism day, since the gift of the Spirit is the fullness of baptism. Ezekiel’s vision shows the Spirit resurrecting and re-creating not just individuals but a whole people. Romans makes it clear that God is in the process of re-creating the entire cosmos; yet the Spirit is also at work in the most intimate and personal way, praying in us “with sighs too deep for words” when we do not know how to pray.
