Holy Spirit

The word Spirit in Holy Spirit comes from the Latin spiritus, a breath, or wind, and the Holy Spirit blows where it wills.  I rely on it when I’m writing, to give me inspiration, but sometimes I don’t feel it is there.  Remember, it blows where it wills.

Yet it can turn the most everyday script into something appropriate, and that is the marvel of it.  It was present on the Twelve Apostles in visible tongues of fire  just before the Ascension of Jesus forty days after Easter, and has enlightened the faithful since then.

He is usually represented as a dove, but is one with the Father, forming the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, beyond human comprehension.  It’s good to know there are some ideas beyond us.
