The Name of Jesus brings Pentecost, Inside and Out -- Motto of FHN



Pentecostal  Tracts  for  the  Times



The readings this week are provided by Fr. Richard Jones, a Friend of the Fellowship of the Holy Name, and vicar at The Uprising Anglican Mission. Fr. Richard has chosen St. Philip Neri, a mystic known as the Apostle of Rome (1515 - 1595) to be his teacher of Christian discipleship.


On fire with the love of God, St. Philip Neri brought many souls to Christ by preaching in the marketplace, counseling bishops, caring for the sick, ministering to the poor, and performing many undeniable miracles. Thus it was through the great fruitfulness and Charisma of his ministry that St. Philip Neri became lovingly referred to in his day as “The Apostle of Rome.”


 Sunday, May 31 - And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. – Acts 2:1-4


The best remedy for dryness of spirit, is to picture ourselves as beggars in the presence of God and the Saints, and like a beggar, to go first to one saint, then to another, to ask a spiritual alms of them with the same earnestness as a poor fellow in the streets would ask an alms of us."  St. Philip Neri


Monday, June 1 - But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:  And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath…– Acts 2:16-19a


“A most excellent means of learning how to pray? Acknowledge that we are unworthy to pray, and so place our efforts entirely in the hands of the Lord.” St. Philip Neri


Tuesday, June 2 - For David speaketh concerning Him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for He is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.– Acts 2:25-28


“Christian joy is a gift of God flowing from a good conscience.”  St. Philip Neri


Wednesday, June 3 - This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.– Acts 2:32-33


“Let no one who lives the Christian life, upon seeing or hearing something in the supernatural, fall into unbelief or become lukewarm through complacency. For when we dwell where the supernatural God dwells, the supernatural is all around us.” Fr.. Philip, OSJB, Abbot


Thursday, June 4 - Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

 Acts 2:38-39


Cast yourself into the arms of God and be very sure that if he wants anything of you, He will fit you for the work and give you strength.” St. Philip Neri


Friday, June 5 - And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. – Acts 2:40


“It is an old custom of the servants of God to have some little prayer ready and to be frequently darting them up to heaven during the day, lifting their minds to God out of the mire of this world.” St. Philip Neri


 Saturday, June 6 - And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. – Acts 2:42 & 46-47


“While we can never imagine God in His fullness (for He is beyond all we could ask or think), we can receive His fullness in the Body and Blood of Christ each time we partake of the Eucharist, which is to fully partake in His Divine nature!"  Fr. Philip, OSJB, Abbot


Responsive Psalm: Psalm 51:11  Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy Holy Spirit from me.

Song: Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heav’nly hosts; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost! Amen. (Doxology)

Inviting the bell to sound: Listen, listen, this wonderful sound calls us to the Jesus life in the heart
