Cloistered Dominican Nuns Corpus Christi Monastery

A Moment’s Meditation: Pentecost Friday

Ask the Holy Spirit for the gift of Piety. It enables us to honor God as our good Father, it inspires us with a holy eagerness to offer Him due worship, it leads us to reverence the saints as His intimate friends, to revere the Holy Scripture as the express of His Truth, and to cherish our fellow men because they are His living image and His adopted children. St. Agnes of Montepulciano gives us an example of piety. Therefore did Jesus and Mary show her tokens of their tenderness, and her sisters loved her as a mother who represented to them the goodness of God.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, teach me to call God: “My Father.”

Practice: In prayer unite your heart by confidence with the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
