And when he had said this, 
he breathed on them
and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” 
(Gospel #1 for Mass during the day).

Drink my blood
wine
and know I
would
die a thousand
deaths
for you

for, 
given
unto you is my
promise
sealed in blood

I shall not
leave you
orphans

My Spirit is
given
you—

he will
tell
you what to do and say—

for my
Father’s will is
that

none be lost
