Jn 20:19-23 (or Jn 14:15-16, 23b-26)
On the evening of that day, the first day after the Sabbath, the doors were locked where the disciples were, because of their fear of the Jews. But Jesus came, and stood among them, and said to them, “Peace be with you!” Then he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples, seeing the Lord, were full of joy.
Again Jesus said to them, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” After saying this, he breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit! Those whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven; those whose sins you retain, they are retained.”
READ: All were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak other languages.
REFLECT: In a play the stage director is not seen, yet he is the one who makes things happen. In like manner the Holy Spirit, though invisible, is the Secret Lover who can inspire our every move—if we let him.
PRAY: Let us offer our hearts to our Secret Lover and invite him to inspire our every action.
ACT: Before an important decision today, let us ask the Spirit to guide us.
