9 June 2014: St Ephraem the Syrian


9 June 2014




Last weekend I failed to mention not only the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, but also the great Feast of Pentecost.

Too late for D-Day, but today is the Feast of St Ephraem the Syrian (c. 303-373), who writes of the enigmatic Third Person of the Trinity most beautifully:

“The Holy Spirit longs to find the gates to our heart,
so that He may enter in and dwell there,
and sanctify it; and He goes round about to all the gates
to see where He may enter.”
