PENTECOST SUNDAY DOMINGO DE PENTECOSTÉS
POPE FRANCIS ON THE MASS The Liturgy of the Word (part 2)
The meal of the Liturgy is a lavish one which draws largely from the treasures of the Bible (cf. SC, 51), both the Old and the New Testaments, because in them, the Church proclaims
the one and the same mystery of Christ (cf. Lectionary, Introduction, 5). Let us think about the richness of the Bible readings offered by the three Sunday cycles, which in the light of the
Synoptic Gospels, accompany us throughout the Liturgical Year: a great richness. Here I wish to also recall the importance of the Responsorial Psalm whose function is to foster meditation
on what was heard in the reading that precedes it. It is preferable that the Psalm be enriched by song, at least in the response (cf. GIRM, 61; Lectionary, Introduction, 19-22).
The Liturgical proclamation of the very same readings with the songs derived from Sacred Scripture expresses and fosters ecclesial communion by accompanying the journey of each and every one. It is the Lord who is speaking to us.
Substituting that Word with other things impoverishes and compromises the dialogue between God and his people in prayer. On the contrary, the dignity of the pulpit and the use of the Lectionary, the availability of good readers and
psalmists [are required]. But we must look for good readers! Those who know how to read, not those who read [distorting the words] and nothing is understood. This is how it is. Good readers. They must be prepared and rehearse
before the Mass in order to read well. And this creates a climate of receptive silence. We know that the Word of the Lord is of indispensable help so as not to get lost, as is clearly recognized by the
Psalmist who, speaking to the Lord, confesses: “Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” (Ps 119 :105). How can we face our earthly pilgrimage with its difficulties and its trials without being regularly nourished
and enlightened by the Word of God which resounds in the Liturgy? Of course it is not enough to listen with our ears without welcoming into our heart the seed of the Divine Word,
allowing it to bear fruit. Let us remember the Parable of the Sower and of the results achieved by the different types of soil (cf. Mk 4:14-20). The action of the Holy Spirit which renders the response effective needs hearts that allow them-
selves to be fashioned and cultivated in such a way that what is heard at Mass passes into daily life, according to the admonishment of the Apostle James: “But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves”
(Jas 1:22). The Word of God makes a pathway within us. We listen to it with our ears and it passes to our hearts; it does not re-
main in our ears; it must go to the heart. And from the heart, it passes to the hands, to good deeds. This is the path which the Word of God follows: from our ears to our heart and hands.
Let us learn these things. Thank you!
May Crowning 2018
Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church
In a decree dated February 11, 2018, Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments announced that “Pope Francis has decreed that the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, should be inscribed in the Roman calendar on the Monday after Pentecost and be celebrated every year”
Therefore, in the Latin-rite Church, the celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church - as an obligatory memorial - will have precedence over any other memorial of a saint or blessed on the Monday following Pentecost.
For more information regarding this new feast, there are pamphlets in the kiosk in the vestibule.
WORDS TO INSPIRE
“The wind and fire of the Holy Spirit must continually break down those barriers that we continue to build between us; we must continually pass from Babel to Pentecost.”
--Pope Benedict XVI
