From Deacon Dick


Come, Lord Jesus, send us your Spirit, renew the face of the earth.”   We pray this Responsorial Psalm as we celebrate our great Feast of Pentecost.  It is the day we have been waiting for … it is the day we are always waiting for … the day of the boundless outpouring of God’s Spirit … it is the day that ties all other days together. 

Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, has put together a Litany of the Holy Spirit that I offer to you today in abbreviated form.  Fr. Richard suggests that you take a calm breath in and out while reciting each sacred name.  For these are metaphors to help us describe the Holy Mystery Within.  Our breathing becomes our prayer.
