10 Minute Daily Retreat - Read the Word of God with a prayerful heart.
By Susanne Timpani (No.203)
A mighty wind invades the world,
So strong and free on beating wing:
It is the Spirit of the Lord
From whom all truth and freedom spring.
The Spirit is a fountain clear
For ever leaping to the sky,
Whose waters give unending life,
Whose timeless source is never dry.
The Spirit comes in tounges of flame,
With love and wisdom burning bright,
The wind, the fountain and the fire
Combine in this great feast of light.
O tranquil Spirit, bring us peace,
With God the Father and the Son.
We praise you, blessed Trinity,
Unchanging, and forever One.
(Hymn from The Divine Office)
Read the scripture slowly.
Reflect on its meaning for you.
Listen for God's voice in the stillness.
Pray for God's blessing upon you.
