DIOCESE OF HONOLULU PRAYER FOR
THE COVID-19 CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC [by Bishop Larry Silva)
of all the living, you sent your Son Jesus to heal us from illness
and sin. We turn to his healing power in this time of anxiety over
the pandemic of this potentially deadly virus. St. Damien and St.
Marianne Cope dedicated their lives to service of those who had an
infectious disease. St. Marianne Cope said, “I am not afraid of any
disease,” because she was confident of your power to save. At the
same time, she took prudent precautions of hygiene to assure that
she and her Sisters would not be infected. Let us learn from this
example to put our trust in you to save us from the ravages of
disease and to take prudent measures to prevent its spread. Guide
us to know when to isolate ourselves from the possibility of
infection, but never let anyone be left without the care and concern
of others in the community. As our Diocese of Honolulu has been
dedicated to the Divine Mercy, we pray with confidence, “Jesus, I
trust in you.”

Reflection of the Gospel
"They were all filled with the Holy Spirit!"
Do you know and experience in your own
life the gift and power of the Holy Spirit? After his death and
resurrection Jesus promised to give his disciples the gift of the
Holy Spirit. He said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit! (John 20:22)
Jesus knew that his disciples would need the power of the Holy
Spirit to carry out the mission entrusted to them. The gift of the
Holy Spirit was conditional upon the ascension of Jesus to the right
hand of the Father. That is why Jesus instructed the apostles to
wait in Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high
(Luke 24:49). Why did they need power from on high? The Gospels tell
us that Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit when he was baptized
at the Jordan River.
A Stewardship Moment
This weekend we celebrate the feast of
Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit among the fearful
believers of the early Church. Saint Paul reminds us of the special
power the Holy Spirit has bestowed upon us to give us confidence and
how that power gives us the potential to live extraordinary lives of
faith. Good stewards recognize this power and use their gifts,
through God’s channel of grace, to transform their lives and the
lives of others. Good stewards know that it is through the Holy
Spirit that they can proclaim: “Jesus is Lord.” How do we allow the
Holy Spirit to work within us to give us strength, confidence and
