MYSTAGOGICAL EXPERIENCE During the last period of the RCIA process called Mystagogy, the Neophytes and candidates are to experience the living into the mystery of the Sacraments received at Easter Vigil. One way is by participating in the Sunday Eucharist in the company of their godparents and those that assisted in their Christian formation. On Sunday, May 18, after attending mass, we went on a FIELD TRIP to St. Michael s Abbey. Fr. Gabriel Stack met us there for the Pascal Vespers held at 5pm. He handed us the English translation of the Latin used in the vespers, so that we might better follow along with the 40 some priests and novices who chanted and sang. During vespers we experienced prayer, a procession to the font, a sprinkling rite, the reading of the Gospel and a homily. The forty minutes were filled with living into the deep mystery and beauty of spiritual presence we had all hoped for in this period of Mystagogy. If you have never attended Pascal Vespers, we highly recommend it, for yet another amazing grace-filled experience in our faith. Blessings, Donna Beam RCIA Director

The power hinted at and the Spirit promised are unleashed on this holy day. We call it the birthday of the church. Try to listen to today s scripture passages with some sense of how electrifying these events must have been to those who lived through them. Up until now, they have been waiting in the upper room. In today s first reading, that room is filled with wind and fire and bold proclamations in foreign tongues. In the second reading, Paul describes the Pentecost event, too. His description includes all of us. The Spirit lives on in the church in each of us who are members of the Body of Christ, given different gifts from the same Spirit. Only after Pentecost could the apostles look back and understand what Jesus meant when he said, as reported in today s Gospel reading, Receive the Holy Spirit. Unless the eye catch fire, God will not be seen. Unless the ear catch fire, God will not be heard. Unless the tongue catch fire, God will not be named. Unless the heart catch fire, God will not be loved. Unless the mind catch fire, God will not be known.

9 Domingo de Pentecostés 8 de junio de 2014 Page 9 Lecturas Domingo de Pentecostés 8 de junio de 2014 Entonces aparecieron lenguas de fuego, que se distribuyeron y se posaron sobre ellos. Hechos 2:3 RECIBAN EL ESPÍRITU SANTO Al fin! El poder que les había sugerido y el Espíritu que les prometió, sólo se libera este día. Lo llamamos el cumpleaños de la Iglesia. Trata de leer los pasajes de la Escritura de hoy con algún sentido de lo extraordinario que esos hechos debieron ser para los que los vivieron. Los dejamos la semana pasada esperando en la habitación del piso de arriba. En la lectura de la primera lectura, la habitación se llena de fuego, viento y audaces proclamaciones en lenguas extranjeras. En la segunda lectura, Pablo describe el acontecimiento de Pentecostés, también. Su descripción incluye a todos nosotros. El Espíritu vive en la Iglesia en cada uno de nosotros que somos miembros del Cuerpo de Cristo, con diferentes dones pero el mismo Espíritu. Sólo después de Pentecostés pudieron los apóstoles mirar el pasado y entender el significado de lo que Jesús quiso decirles cuando expresó lo que nos cuenta el Evangelio de hoy: Reciban el Espíritu Santo.
