A Way to Pentecost:

Come, Holy Spirit,
give us a sense of unity and common purpose
As we have received Faith through other people,
give us the words and actions
that will help others to believe in you.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew,
On our dryness pour thy dew;
Wash the stains of guilt away.
Our Father: Hail Mary: Glory be...

Action point from the writing of Pope Francis:

Jesus takes us from the midst of his people and he sends us to his people;
without this sense of belonging we cannot understand our deepest identity.
He himself is the model of this method of evangelization which brings us to the
very heart of his people.
How good it is for us to contemplate the closeness which he shows to everyone!
