Pentecost Sunday (A Prayer For You)

There is nothing more frustrating to be wanting to give and nobody wants to receive.
– Fr. Jim Brand

Surfers, today is Pentecost Sunday and we hear the story once again about how the Apostles of Jesus received the Holy Spirit. Father Jim Brand reminds us that we have to want to receive the gifts of God. We have to want to receive the message of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Annie Karto captured this desire to accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit in her song Sanctify. She asks God through the Holy Spirit to take up residence in her soul and sanctify the work of her hands. Accepting the gifts of the Holy Spirit begins with wanting to receive.

To receive with grace is as dignified as to give with grace.
– Fr. Jim Brand

Here is a prayer, from me, that this Pentecost Sunday finds you wanting to receive the Holy Spirit. God Bless.


About neodecaussade

I am a Roman Catholic quester. You will find that I have scripture based academic interests. You will discover that I am a conservative Catholic but I am also prone to heterodox tendencies. I am versed in highly pietistic traditionalist practices but I am not a traditionalist. I am interested in entering a discussion on the future of the Roman Catholic Church. I would like to have a role in discussing how the future Church will be shaped.
