Your heart is a sun—
Joy its stars,
Faith a moon, shining in your darkness…

The First Verb
The Holy Spirit animates
our past mistakes, and then
puts medicine on our wounds.
We praise this Spirit of incandescence
A song of medieval mystic,
~St. Hildegard of Bingen
For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. ~Isaiah 57:15 ✝
Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you save, you heal, you restore, and you reveal Your Father’s heart to us! You have captured me with grace and I’m caught in Your infinite embrace! Like Saint Hildegard Lord, may I too be a feather on your holy breath and spread, like seeds, the gospel abroad.
