Come, Holy Spirit, Come.
If you were asked to come up with a list of words to describe a desert, many of these words would be included: dry, thirsting, hot, parched, barren, dusty, arid, empty, and desolate. Now if there was an abundance of water, an entirely different list of words would describe that place: wet, green, lush, bountiful, oasis, alive, thriving, blossoming, and growing.
Our souls are like the desert. God, in the person of the Holy Spirit, is like living water that sustains us on our journey. The Holy Spirit restores and renews, creating in us an oasis of goodness and love. The Holy Spirit is life for our soul. The gift of the Holy Spirit is given to us at baptism. If we accept that gift and embrace it daily, our souls will thrive.
Pentecost is an opportunity for us to join together in thanking the Lord for the gift of the Holy Spirit. This life-giving person is our strength throughout our days. Pray each day for the Holy Spirit to renew us so that our souls may blossom and not become like the desert.
