We, the early risers, bedecked in our red garments, accessories, ribbons and bows gathered to pray.
The flame flag floating and dancing above us, around us, and within our small but faithful community of 8am Mass attendees as we lifted our voices and proclaimed:
“We are a Pilgrim people, we are the Church of God…”
And we must be, for our call is to be bearers of the Good News:
for a weary, war-ridden, violent world.
We must re-ignite the flame of love.
It will be small, almost imperceptible at first.
Sudden surprising gusts of wind will nurture the flame with joy, hope, love
and we will be amazed.
We shall declare God’s peace hope love
in tongues that seem indiscernible
until we let the words truly flow from our hearts.
We desire peace
justice for all peoples
wonder and awe
and above all
The Pentecost outbreak is here.
Let’s do it….
