Taste and See: God at work

O God, who by the mystery of today’s great feast
sanctify your whole Church in every people and nation,
pour out, we pray, the gifts of the Holy Spirit
across the face of the earth
and, with the divine grace that was at work
when the Gospel was first proclaimed,
fill now once more the hearts of believers.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

Collect for Pentecost: Mass during the Day

The work is the Lord’s – the first sanctification of the Church and the sustaining of the Church in holiness.

But we too have our work – of cooperating with grace, not least in sharing it with others in our turn.
