The Breath of Jesus
The Gospel for the Vigil of Pentecost is St. John 20:19-23, in which we learn that on Easter, Jesus breathed on his disciples and said, "Receive the Holy Ghost." Clearly, therefore, the Holy Spirit is none other than the breath of Jesus. The Gospel of Jesus' sacrifice and resurrection is proclaimed with his breath, now to all the world. The sermon, with the Pentecost sequence and Gospel, is here.
