The Transforming Wind of the Spirit

                                              
   

“And suddenly, there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it  filled the entire house in which they were.  Then there appeared to
them tongues of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them.
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit.” 
(Acts 2:  2-11)

As we celebrate our DHS patronal feast, let us contemplate the wind in which the Spirit came to the disciples. This wind which comes to us, this breath of the Spirit showers each of us with everlasting love and guidance.

A FEATHER ON THE BREATH OF GOD
Breath of Spirit breezing from all
corners of the universe,
Waft us upward as feathers
upon your breath,
Soaring to uttermost limits in
your love.
Breath of Spirit breezing from all
corners of the universe,
Root of our existence,
Focus of our lives,
Energizer of our feather-borne
destiny.
Breath of Spirit breezing from all
corners of the universe,
Enter into each of us,
Permeate our being with your
intense love.
Breath of Spirit breezing from all
corners of the universe,
We soar upward as your
breath-borne feathers to
savor unknown wonders.
May the Spirit of Pentecost transform our lives forever!

spirit on fire
