Pentecost Sunday : May 24, 2015
Gospel reading ( John 15:26-27 )
Jesus said to his disciples; “When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning. I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”
*Originally the Jewish feast to offer God the first fruits of the harvest. It was celebrated seven weeks after Passover; thus, the Greek name Pentekoste, meaning the 50th day.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
“The Holy Spirit draws us into the mystery of the living God and saves us from the threat of a Church which is gnostic and self-referential, closed in on herself; He impels us to open the doors and go forth to proclaim and bear witness to the goodness of the Gospel.
- Pope Francis
BREATHE IN ME, O HOLY SPIRIT
O Holy Spirit,
That my thoughts may all be holy;
Act in me, O Holy Spirit,
That I love but what is holy;
O Holy Spirit,
To defend all that is holy;
Guard me, then,
O Holy Spirit,
That I always may be holy.

CHANGE OF SUMMER MASS SCHEDULE
Within a few weeks, summer vacations will begin, and many families will leave Key Biscayne to take a break elsewhere. Since during these months the Mass attendance is reduced, beginning on Sunday, June 7th, until September 6th, 2015, the Mass schedule will be as follows:
9:00 am, 11:00 am, and 6:00 pm (English)
1:00 pm and 7:30 pm (Spanish)
This of course combines the Masses at 8:30 am and 10:00 am into only one at 9:00 am. At the same time, the Mass at 11:30 am will be advanced to 11:00 am. The Saturday Masses will continue as always at 8:00 am and 5:30 pm. On September 13th, we will return to the regular schedule.
