    Weekly Reflection

    The season of Easter concludes with today’s celebration, the feast of Pentecost. On Pentecost
    we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles gathered in the upper room in
    Jerusalem; this event marks the beginning of the Church. The story of Pentecost is found in
    the Acts of the Apostles, today’s first reading. The account in today’s Gospel, John 20:19-23,
    also recounts how Jesus gave the gift of the Holy Spirit to his disciples. Yet the event in John’s
    Gospel takes place on Easter Sunday. There is no need to try to reconcile these two accounts.
    It is to we know that after his death, Jesus fulfilled his promise to send to his disciples a helper,
    an Advocate, who would enable them to be his witnesses throughout the world.
    In the context of the feast of Pentecost, John 20:19-23 reminds us about the integral connection
    between the gifts of peace and forgiveness and the action of the Holy Spirit. Jesus greets his
    disciples with the gift of peace. Jesus then commissions his disciples to continue the work that
    he has begun: “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” He breathes the Holy Spirit upon
    the disciples and sends them to continue his work of reconciliation through the forgiveness of
    sins. Jesus’ act of breathing the Holy Spirit upon the apostles mirrors God’s act of breathing
    life into Adam.
    In fact, both the Greek and Hebrew words for “spirit” can also be translated as “breath.” This
    Gospel reminds us that the Church is called to be a reconciling presence in the world. The
    reconciling presence of Christ is celebrated in the Church’s sacramental life. In the Sacrament
    of Baptism, we are cleansed of sin and become a new creation in Christ. In the Sacrament of
    Penance, the Church celebrates the mercy of God through the forgiveness of sins. This
    reconciling presence is also to be a way of life for Christians. In situations of conflict, we are to
    be agents of peace and harmony among people.

    Children’s Liturgy

    Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
