Pentecost – The Gift of the Spirit

The word Pentecost in Greek means Fifty Days, and is the translation of the Hebrew word Shavout, meaning “weeks,” specifically, the seven weeks since Passover.  Shavout, or “The Feast of Weeks” commemorates the giving of the Law, the Torah, to Moses at Mt. Sinai. The Christian feast of Pentecost Sunday commemorates the giving of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles. The color of this feast is Red, which reminds us

The Seventh Sunday of Easter

John 17:20-26 20 “I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word,  21 that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.  22 The glory which thou hast given me I have given to them, that they may

The Sixth Sunday of Easter

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you,” from the Gospel according to St. John. St. John uses the

The Fifth Sunday of Easter

And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are true words of God.” … from the Revelation to St. John the Divine, 19:1,4-9 You will notice that this reading from the Revelation to St. John the Divine is filled with images of marriage. Listen to these words: “Hallelujah! For the Lord our

The Fourth Sunday of Easter – Mothers Day

Acts of the Apostles 13:15-16, 26-39 Happy Mother’s Day to the dear Mothers here among us. St. Paul wrote to St. Timothy to regard all older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters. This shows his love and respect for all women, and we men today would be wise to do the same. And Happy Mother’s Day to the Mother of our Lord, the Ever Blessed Virgin Mary, the

The Third Sunday of Easter

John 21:1-14 Our Gospel reading this morning chronicles the third time that Jesus appeared to his disciples since he was raised from the dead. You will recall that last Sunday we heard about the first two appearances. Jesus breathed on his disciples and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” What

The Second Sunday of Easter

John 20:19-31 From the Gospel of St. John, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Today is the second Sunday in Eastertide, and as it is the 8th day of Easter, it is known as the Octave. The eight-day feast coincides with Passover this year, which ended at Nightfall last night. On this Second Sunday in Eastertide, in the year 2000,

Easter Sunday

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! How wonderful it is to cry out Alleluia once again. Today, like that early morning that we heard about in the Gospel is the first day of the week. This is the day we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. Every Sunday of the year is a celebration of his resurrection, but this one is our annual feast recalling that

Easter Vigil

Tonight we celebrate the most glorious event in the history of mankind, the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Alleluia! In the midst of darkness, we lit the New Fire, the very Light of Christ. We heard the Exultet, singing the praises of Mother Church and the Holy Flame. This past Holy Week we have remembered and celebrated the final events in the life of our Savior. On

Sunday of the Passion; Palm Sunday

There is a hymn published in 1876 by Dr. Robert Lowry, a prominent Baptist preacher who was born in Philadelphia. It is not in our hymnal, so I had never heard it until it was performed by the Jars of Clay, on the album Redemption Songs, released in 2005. The album featured many songs that the artists had sung in their Baptist or Methodist churches as youths, and they put
