“Sunday in a TweetShell” for the Gospel for Pentecost Sunday (Year A) [May 28, 2023] – Jn 20:19-23
Above is the image of the tweet for my “Sunday in a TweetShell: Sunday’s Gospel Message and Us in 280 or Less” I tweeted and shared on my FB for today’s Gospel reading for Pentecost Sunday of the Easter Season (Year A) [May 28, 2023].
On the evening of that first day of the week,
when the doors were locked, where the disciples were,
for fear of the Jews,
Jesus came and stood in their midst
and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side.
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.”
And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them,
“Receive the Holy Spirit.
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them,
and whose sins you retain are retained.”
