Holy Spirit, Lord of Light,
From the clear celestial height.
Thy pure beaming radiance give.
Come, thou Father of the poor,
Come, with treasures which endure;
Come, thou Light of all that live!
Thou, of all consolers best,
Thou, the soul's delightful guest,
Dost refreshing peace bestow.
Thou in toil art comfort sweet;
Pleasant coolness in the heat;
Solace in the midst of woe.
Light immortal, Light divine,
Visit thou these hearts of thine,
And our inmost being fill.
If thou take thy grace away,
Nothing pure in man will stay;
All his good is turned to ill.
Heal our wounds, our strength renew;
On our dryness pour thy dew,
Wash the stains of guilt away.
Bend the stubborn heart and will;
Melt the frozen, warm the chill;
Guide the steps that go astray.
Thou, on us who evermore
Thee confess and thee adore,
With thy sevenfold gifts descend.
Give us comfort when we die;
Give us life with thee on high;
Give us joys that never end.
Let us pray for the Sick

Sundays before
the Mass
here’s a medieval
song that was sung
in Latin at Pentecost while
the deacon carried the gospel-book in the procession
at Mass, prior to proclaiming the gospel itself. It’s
called the Pentecost Sequence and it contains line
after line that speaks about
the gift of the Holy
Spirit. It describes
the Spirit as Lord
of Light, Father of
the Poor, Best
Consoler, Sweet
Comfort, Healer,
Giver of Strength,
Renewer, etc.
n today’s Gospel Jesus says he will
ask the Father to send the
“Advocate”. We tend to
think of an advocate as
someone who campaigns
on a particular topic: an
advocate for equal rights or
an advocate for better
housing conditions. In fact,
the word advocate really
means someone whom you
call to stand by your side in
solidarity. It’s the equivalent
of the other strangesounding word, Paraclete.
Pentecost rounds off Jesus’
saving work on earth as the
Spirit completes the action
of Jesus in taking on our
humanity and humanising it
to the point where it can
glimpse the divine. What
we see happening at that
first Pentecost is that Jesus
has not left us alone like
and nation.
omeone once said that
we should pray as if
everything depended on
God but act as if everything
depended on us. Certainly
this is true of the Spirit. We
are only too aware of our
weakness and our inability
to “go it alone”
when it comes to
living out our faith
and telling others
about it. That’s why
we pray constantly
for the outpouring
of the Spirit in our
lives, that we may
be transformed,
strengthened, inspired and supported in our
orphans; he has sent the Christian lives.
Holy Spirit, the Advocate, to
ne thing that we canbe by our side. And the
not do is to restrict
effects are immediate.
From being a frightened the Spirit. If we ask for the
bunch of weak men, hud- Advocate then we agree to
dled for safety behind a an adventure in faith that
locked door, the apostles has no boundaries. After
are transformed by the all, we call on the Spirit just
Spirit’s presence, are em- to make us feel good; we
boldened to go out and ask for the Spirit to come
confront their fears, pro- and transform creation:
claiming their faith in Christ Lord, send out your Spirit
to people from every race and renew the face of the

Volunteers Needed
Volunteers are needed to distribute
and collect the envelopes in the area
surrounding our church. If you can
help, please get in touch with Deacon
David Joy
St David's Parish Gift Aid
During the last financial year with some of
the generous donations to the church being Gift Aided, we were able to recover
£9,224.57 from HM Customs and Revenue. A record amount due both to increased Gift Aid donations and also some
changes in HMRC rules.
This 'free money' certainly helped offset
the cost of running the parish and carrying
out the recent improvements to the church
and parish hall.
Over the next few weeks, Mike Bunting will
be in the church porch with the new envelopes for those signed up for the scheme
and if there are any existing or new parish
members who pay tax and would like to
join then he has the forms and can answer
any questions that you may have.
Red Boxes
The Missio Red Boxes are now due to be
emptied; please leave them in the Sacristy. Please ensure your names are on the
boxes when you drop them off. If you forgot to collect your boxes last time, you will
find them in the porch.
