The Collect for the Day of Pentecost
O God, who on this day taught the hearts
of your faithful people by sending to them the light of your Holy
Spirit: Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgment in all
things, and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort; through Jesus
Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of
the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Saint Mark's Parish Prayer
ever-living God, ruler of all things in heaven and earth, hear our
prayers for this parish family. Fill us with your Holy Spirit,
strengthen the faithful, arouse the passive, restore the penitent.
Grant that each of us will open our eyes and heart to be free to offer
our gifts as necessary for our common life. Bring us in harmony
with Christ so we may become your light in this world. Amen.
The Day of Pentecost
Philip said to Jesus, "Lord, show us
the Father, and we will be satisfied." Jesus said to him, "Have I been
with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever
has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, `Show us the Father'?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The
words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who
dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the
Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works
themselves. Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also
do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these,
because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name,
so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me
for anything, I will do it.
"If you love me, you will keep my
commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another
Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the
world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You
know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you."
["I have said these things to you while
I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father
will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all
that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be
troubled, and do not let them be afraid."]
O God, you will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are fixed on you; for in returning and rest we shall
be saved; in quietness and trust shall be our strength.
Isaiah 26:3; 30:15
