Magnanimous Musings of Fr. John Robert Skeldon Happy Birthday, Church! Pentecost is the Church’s birthday. The Father birthed the Church into existence through the Son in the power of the Holy Spirit. The great Sequence of Pentecost is a powerful prayer invoking the Spirit to move us from pusillanimity to magnanimity. May it be our prayer as a Church. Come, Holy Spirit, come! And from your celestial home Shed a ray of light divine! Come, Father of the poor! Come, source of all our store! Come, within our bosoms shine. You, of comforters the best; You, the soul’s most welcome guest; Sweet refreshment here below; In our labor, rest most sweet; Grateful coolness in the heat; Solace in the midst of woe. O most blessed Light divine, Shine within these hearts of yours, And our inmost being fill! Where you are not, we have naught, Nothing good in deed or thought, Nothing free from taint of ill. Heal our wounds, our strength renew; On our dryness pour your dew; Wash the stains of guilt away: Bend the stubborn heart and will; Melt the frozen, warm the chill; Guide the steps that go astray. On the faithful, who adore And confess you, evermore In your sevenfold gift descend; Give them virtue’s sure reward; Give them your salvation, Lord; Give them joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia. Reflexión Magnánima de Padre John Robert Skeldon ¡Iglesia, Feliz cumpleaños! Pentecostés es el cumpleaños de la Iglesia. El Padre dio a luz a la Iglesia que existiría por medio del Hijo con el poder del Espíritu Santo. La gran Secuencia de Pentecostés es una poderosa oración invocando al Espíritu que nos cambiará de la pusilanimidad a la magnanimidad. Que sea nuestra oración como Iglesia. Ven, Dios Espíritu Santo, y envíanos desde el cielo tu luz, para iluminarnos. Ven ya, padre de los pobres, luz que penetra en las almas, dador de todos los dones. Fuente de todo consuelo, amable huésped del alma, paz en las horas de duelo. Eres pausa en el trabajo; brisa, en un clima de fuego; consuelo, en medio del llanto. Ven, luz santificadora, y entra hasta el fondo del alma de todos los que te adoran. Sin tu inspiración divina los hombres nada podemos y el pecado nos domina. Lava nuestras inmundicias, fecunda nuestros desiertos y cura nuestras heridas. Doblega nuestra soberbia, calienta nuestra frialdad, endereza nuestras sendas. Concede a aquellos que ponen en ti su fe y su confianza tus siete sagrados dones. Danos virtudes y méritos, danos una buena muerte y contigo el gozo eterno. Amén. Aleluya.
