Friday Florilegia, Friday, May 18, 2012, Pentecost

Friday Florilegia, on Sunday I'm sorry to say, I've selected the second reading from next Sunday's Mass for the Feast of Pentecost.  I hope, over this next week, to spend a good deal of time myself with this reading.

Reading 2 1 Cor 12:3b-7, 12-13

Brothers and sisters:
No one can say, "Jesus is Lord," except by the Holy Spirit.
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for some benefit.

As a body is one though it has many parts,
and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body,
so also Christ.
For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body,
whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons,
and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.
