The Risen Jesus, on the evening of Resurrection, came and stood in the midst of the disciples. He breathed on them and gave them his own spirit, The Holy Spirit, with two messages: be at peace with one another and free one another through forgiveness. The disciples were filled with joy. This is our Pentecost message. When we pay attention to our breath, we breathe in Jesus' Spirit, we can remember that we are now the peace makers and the agents of forgiveness. This fills us, too, with great joy.
