Monday Spiritual Ruminations: Pentecost stirrings….

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…”

We are.

And we must be, for our call is to be bearers of the Good News:

hope

fire

faith

love

for a weary, war-ridden, violent world.

We must re-ignite the flame of love.

We must.

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

understanding

right judgment

wisdom

courage

reverence

knowledge

wonder and awe

and above all

love…

The Pentecost outbreak is here.

Let’s do it….

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
