Luke (Acts 1)

Stephen said to the people, “You stiff-necked people. You always oppose the Holy Spirit.”

Reflection:
Stephen reminded the people about the Descent of the Holy Spirit and the words of the prophet Joel, “Says God, I will pour out my Spirit upon all mankind.” (Joel 3)

Prayer:
Lord God, young Stephen spoke the truth with the wisdom of the Spirit and it cost him his life. Give us his hope and tenacious courage.
