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 SpiritWhose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church

731 On the day of Pentecost when the seven weeks of Easter had come to an end, Christ’s Passover is fulfilled in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, manifested, given, and communicated as a divine person: of his fullness,Christ, the Lord, pours out the Spirit in abundance.

1287 This fullness of the Spirit was not to remain uniquely the Messiah’s, but was to be communicated to the whole messianic people. On several occasions Christ promised this outpouring of the Spirit, a promise which he fulfilled first on Easter Sunday and then more strikingly at Pentecost. Filled with the Holy Spirit the apostles began to proclaim “the mighty works of God,” and Peter declared this outpouring of the Spirit to be the sign of the messianic age.Those who believed in the apostolic preaching and were baptized received the gift of the Holy Spirit in their turn.

1288 “From that time on the apostles, in fulfillment of Christ’s will, imparted to the newly baptized by the laying on of hands the gift of the Spirit that completes the grace of Baptism. For this reason in the Letter to the Hebrews the doctrine concerning Baptism and the laying on of hands is listed among the first elements of Christian instruction. The imposition of hands is rightly recognized by the Catholic tradition as the origin of the sacrament of Confirmation, which in a certain way perpetuates the grace of Pentecost in the Church.

From “The Great Crusade of Mercy” Testimony of Catalina Rivas (CM-15:16)

15) On this day when you are preparing to reflect on Pentecost, it is well to give some thought to those beloved Apostles who without being aware of anything, continued their lives as before as if I had not passed among them without radically changing their futures. To think that in one stroke they would experience the brilliant day of Pentecost is an error. So look upon this thoughtfully and reflect on the fact that I will do the same with you if you truly accept My promise.

16) The Holy Spirit will come beholding the Light. The work of the Father was to send Me to this earth. My work was to redeem; the work of the Holy Spirit is to exalt. That final work is taking place and it will cease when all are saved, that is, all those who wish to be saved. But before that, arise with Me to Heaven, and meditate on how much I love you. Pray before My Blessed Sacrament and then the Spirit will pour Itself upon you.

GOSPEL MT 28:16-20

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
When they all saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them,“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded youAnd behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church

1122 Christ sent his apostles so that “repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in his name to all nations.” “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” The mission to baptize, and so the sacramental mission, is implied in the mission to evangelize, because the sacrament is prepared for by the word of God and by the faith which is assent to this word:

1123The purpose of the sacraments is to sanctify men, to build up the Body of Christ and, finally, to give worship to God. Because they are signs they also instruct. They not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects they also nourish, strengthen, and express it. That is why they are called sacraments of faith.'”

From “Door to Heaven” Testimony of Catalina Rivas (DH-3:7-8)

7) Do not lose fervor and enthusiasm in your works, both small and large. Give it everything, with all that you have… Solemnly I tell you that you are very privileged! Many of the consecrated would wish to have the teachings that you have had… Do not let them fall into oblivion. Do not keep them to yourselves; teach them to your brothers. Do what My first disciples did, go out and preach what you have learnt, but first, you must assimilate it…

8) My children, your God is present in each and every one of you; make your God the center and foremost in your families.
