The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let the hearer say, “Come.” Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water. Revelation 22:7
|The Wise and Foolish Virgins, Jan Adam Kruseman|
And this which was just too beautiful not to post.

|Adoration of the Mystic Lamb from the Ghent Altarpiece by Jan van Eyck|
Come, O Divine Spirit, fill my heart with Thy heavenly fruits, Thy charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, faith, mildness, and temperance, that I may never weary in the service of God, but by continued faithful submission to Thy inspiration may merit to be united eternally with Thee in the love of the Father and the Son. Amen. Prayer from Day 9 of Novena to the Holy Spirit.AMDG
