Come, Holy Spirit!

Today is Pentecost, the day on which we celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles. It's also the birthday of the Church, and is a day fit for celebration.

For a list of great ideas, see this page at Women for Faith and Family. Any list that includes a birthday cake is worth spending time on (in my humble, sugar-addicted opinion.)

Tomorrow, we'll be back to Ordinary Time. The Easter decorations will all come down, and life once again will be "ordinary."

And yet, I find nothing about day-to-day existence in this world to be ordinary, if by that one means dull and pedestrian. "Ordinary Time" is full of ideas, things and people to celebrate, discover and learn about.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love.

Thanks for the WFF links. I have not been on their website for some time. I will have to check out their ideas for "ordinary time".
