Prepare - Ponder - Pray

When preparing for or celebrating Pentecost this weekend, listen to the musical selection below for some Music for Pentecost. Some parishes encourage folks to wear a little red on Pentecost (the liturgical color of the day and a reminder of the tongues of fire that came to rest over the heads of believers on this day.

Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful.
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your spirit, Lord, and they shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray...

O God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit
instructed the hearts of your faithful,
grant that in the same Spirit we may be truly wise
and ever rejoice in his consolation,
through Christ, our Lord. Amen
