Feast of Pentecost


Happy the pure heart. How infinite in the Holy Spirit.
Bouasse-Lebel 

Beside the Living Water through the action of the Holy Spirit, 
the soul is nourished and purified. 
Made one with all life in the infinite love of God, this unity is true happiness; 
it is the expansiveness of joy.

Come, giver of gifts,
Come, light of the heart.
