Acts 14:5-18; Psalm 113; John 14:21-26
In the gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that after he has gone they will be given the Holy Spirit who will teach and remind them everything he had said. This Spirit is the one who caused Paul and Barnabas to work as they did in the first reading. The Holy Spirit is the teacher in the Church. That same Spirit has been given to us and will work in us if we available.
Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
