Gospel John 20:19-23 

On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord.
Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you.
As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”

FOR REFLECTION
This is Pentecost Sunday!  The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. 
1. How do you rejoice when you feel the prince of Jesus around you? 
2. Jesus is giving then the Holy Spirit. Let this Pentecost Sunday be a special one for you. When you hear this gospel being read this week, put yourself in the scene and receive the Holy Spirit.
