Gospel: John 15:9-17

When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After He said this, He showed them His hands and His side. Then 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.” When He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”


COLLECT FOR THE DAY OF PENTECOST

Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


COLLECT FOR ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Almighty and generous God, you are the Creator and Giver of all that is good. We thank you and praise you for the beauty of the earth, and for all the gifts which we have been given. By your grace, may we show gratitude and always be mindful in guarding it from exploitation, Help us to be good stewards, who care for your earth, and who work to preserve it for future generations through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
