Entrance Hymn (All
please join in singing)
Brethren, let us acknowledge our
sins, that we may
ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.
I confess to almighty God and to
you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through my fault,
through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary
ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and
sisters, to pray
for me to the Lord our God.
May almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us our sins and bring us
to everlasting life.
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of
We praise you, we bless you,
we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great

First reading Acts 2:1-11
When Pentecost day came round, they had
all met in one room, when suddenly they heard what sounded like a powerful wind from
heaven, the noise of which filled the entire house in which they were sitting; and
something appeared to them that seemed like tongues of fire; these separated and came to
rest on the head of each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to
speak foreign languages as the Spirit gave them the gift of speech.
Now there were devout men
living in Jerusalem from every nation under heaven, and at this sound they all assembled,
each one bewildered to hear these men speaking his own language. They were amazed and
astonished. Surely they said all these men speaking are Galileans? How
does it happen that each of us hears them in his own native language? Parthians, Medes and
Elamites; people from Mesopotamia, Judaea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and
Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya round Cyrene; as well as visitors from Rome
Jews and proselytes alike Cretans and Arabs; we hear them preaching in our own
language about the marvels of God.
Send forth your spirit, O
and renew the
face of the earth.
Second reading Galatians 5:16-25
If you are guided by the Spirit you will
be in no danger of yielding to self-indulgence, since self-indulgence is the opposite of
the Spirit, the Spirit is totally against such a thing, and it is precisely because the
two are so opposed that you do not always carry out your good intentions. If you are led
by the Spirit, no law can touch you. When self-indulgence is at work the results are
obvious: fornication, gross indecency and sexual irresponsibility; idolatry and sorcery;
feuds and wrangling, jealousy, bad temper and quarrels; disagreements, factions, envy;
drunkenness, orgies and similar things. I warn you now, as I warned you before: those who
behave like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. What the Spirit brings is very
different: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and
self-control. There can be no law against things like that, of course. You cannot belong
to Christ Jesus unless you crucify all self-indulgent passions and desires. Since the Spirit is our life, let us be directed by
Come, Holy Spirit, fill
the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the
fire of your love.
Jesus said to his disciples:

I still have many
things to say to you but they would be too much for you now.
But when the Spirit of truth comes he will lead you to the complete truth,
since he will not be speaking as from himself but will say only what he has learnt;
and he will tell you of the
things to come.
He will glorify me, since all he tells you will
be taken from what is mine. Everything the Father has is mine; that is why I said:
All he tells you will
be taken from what is mine.
