Pentecost Sunday (Red)
Gospel Reading John 20:19-23

Jesus appears to his disciples and gives them the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Pentecost is sometimes called the birthday of the Church. The Gospel for Pentecost reminds us that the
Church begins with the command to forgive. Within the family, the domestic Church, we learn how to
forgive and we learn to accept forgiveness. It is the gift of the Holy Spirit that enables us to do both.
Today is a fitting time to share a family celebration of reconciliation.
As you gather together as a family, sit quietly for a few minutes, inviting all to reflect upon their need to
forgive and to receive forgiveness. If there is a situation or issue within the family that needs attention,
spend some time reflecting upon the concern and how your family might address it. Read together
today's Gospel, John 20:19-23. Talk together about how Jesus gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit to help
us in the work of forgiveness and to bring us peace. Pray together today's psalm, or the Prayer to the
Holy Spirit, asking that the Holy Spirit help your family. Share with one another the sign of peace.
