This prayer, or reflection, has been my daily companion for this Year of Faith.

 It’s specially appropriate for today, the Vigil of Pentecost:

The Spirit comes gently

and makes himself known by his fragrance.

He is not felt as a burden,

for he is light, very light.

Rays of light and knowledge

stream before him as he approaches.

The Spirit comes with the tenderness

of a true friend and protector to save,

to heal, to teach, to counsel,

to strengthen, to console.

St Cyril of Jerusalem
(315-386)
