Happy Pentecost!! This is the day that we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit--the third Person of the Blessed Trinity. The traditional "gifts of the Spirit" is taken from the Old Testament book of Isaiah.
But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom. The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, a spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord, and his delight shall be the fear of the Lord.
~Isaiah 11:1-3
The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit:
  1. Wisdom
  2. Understanding
  3. Knowledge
  4. Strength
  5. Counsel
  6. Piety
  7. Fear of the Lord

This YouTube video is a combination of meditations on Ascension and Pentecost.

I have just discovered your blog and must say how interesting it is.

I'll try and pop in again to read more.

It would be nice if you ever got the chance to come and say hello on mine :-)

Take care,


Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
