The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is often depicted as a dove, a symbol of peace. We forget how really dynamic the Holy Spirit is!
Last Sunday, to prepare for Pentecost, I asked the community to use the Sequence of the Mass for May 31 as a Lectio Divina - I read it slowly aloud and then, after a pause for reflection, read it again. Then we had a prayerful silence before a fruitful sharing. Each had been asked to say what line or phrase had struck her and we all had chosen different phrases. I am going to copy the sequence for you tomorrow for those who want to use it for prayer.
In the meantime we can be with Mary and the Apostles in prayer as they awaited the promised coming of the Holy Spirit who would transform them with his sevenfold gifts.
