…they were all in one place together….Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. (Acts 2: 1b,3)
A Prayer Poem by Sister Juliemarie McDonald, SND,
May 27, 2012
With blowing rush of wind,
Come, dove, ready to wing,
Shape our souls for your descent into us.
Donor, with no limit to liberality.
Gift-ladened gift of God,
Fire of Charity,
Flash with light,
Flame with energy,
Leap with love,
Light of minds and hearts,
Make us lights for the whole Church.
Spirit of Truth,
Teacher of the Church’s doctrine,
Fullness of Wisdom.
Fill us with fervor,
And right desires. Amen.
