Pentecost Prayer

Come, thou Holy Spirit come:
and from thy celestial home
send thy light and brilliancy.
Come, thou father of the poor,
come who givest all our store.
What is filthy make thou pure,
what is wounded work its cure,
water what is parched and dry.
Gently bend the stubborn will,
warm to life the heart that’s chill,
guide who goeth erringly.
Fill thy faithful who adore,
and confess thee evermore,
with thy sevenfold mystery.
Here thy grace and virtue send,
grant salvation in the end, and in heaven felicity. Amen
– From a 13th century Latin Hymn, courtesy Paraclete Press

    We’ve relegated Holy Spirit or Breath to a theological concept rather than the experiential Source of inner wisdom and enlightenment – the one who opens our eyes from this waking dream that we call reality. Unfortunately commercially orientated Charismatics and Pentecostals are as far off the mark as the rest of Christendom. The Medieval Christian mystics are the closest we get to truth regarding Spirit I believe.
