Reading and Sermon for the Day of Pentecost

While we cannot be together physically we are still together spiritually through the reading of scripture and the sermon. The reading and sermon for the Day of Pentecost, May 31, 2020, can be found at this link on Youtub. We also hope you will read this prayer from Teilhard de Chardin titled Trust in the Slow Work of God.

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.

We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.

We should like to skip the intermediate stages.

We are impatient of being on the way

to something unknown,

something new.

Yet it is the law of all progress, that it is made

by passing through some stages of instability,

and that may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you.

Your ideas mature gradually. Let them grow.

Let them shape themselves without undue haste.

Do not try to force them on

as though you could be today what time-that is to say, grace- and circumstances

acting on your own good will

will make you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new Spirit

gradually forming in you will be.

Give our Lord the benefit of believing

that his hand is leading you

and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself

in suspense and incomplete.

Above all, trust in the slow work of God, our loving vine-dresser.
