Immersed in the Spirit

Happy Pentecost Sunday from this tiny, wistful wonder of God’s creation. This precious child is one of many now residing with us and each and every one is a wellspring of joy and amazement to us daily. We are charmed and delighted by their exuberance as they grow in the warmth of our loving home and we thank God we are able to be a safe haven for them, their moms, and all our Joseph’s House family.

Pentecost is one of my favorite Feast Days and so I wanted to share with you one of my favorite prayers directed towards the Third Person of the Trinity, The Holy Spirit. It is a prayer that easily brings tears to my eyes as I offer myself to the Paraclete, our God of Love. It is the prayer that rescues me from gloomy moods, soothes my anxiety and fills me with awe as the words deliver me to a peaceful place where the depths of the love of Jesus for His prodigal children are made apparent. It is the prayer where I recall life’s sorrows and miracles and see perfectly how Our Lord and Savior is always at the center of each and every experience. It is the prayer empowering me to unearth the magnificent omnipotence of He who is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, illuminating me with a knowledge of His endearment for all those He has chosen.

Perhaps you will consider adding these enchanting words to your daily prayers, gifting yourself to God’s Holy Will through total surrender. As you repeat the words each day strengthening your soul, grace will overtake your heart and you will come to understand how offering your entire being to the Advocate results in becoming completely fulfilled and thoroughly immersed in the Spirit .

God Bless you my friends,

Love & Prayers,

Holy Spirit God of Love, be present to me

Accept this offering of myself I make to you.

Receive my hands, my feet, my eyes, my tongue and all my senses.

Receive my memory, my will, my understanding, my sighs,

the longing and aspirations of my heart.

Receive my every moment, my every hour and all the happenings of my life.

Holy Spirit God of Love, knit my soul to yours.

Let your love possess my whole being, my powers, my inspirations, my very life.

Let your love rule my labor and my rest, my going and my staying and move me as it pleases.

Let your love humble or exalt me, calm me or disquiet me and burn away all of my faults.

Holy Spirit God of Love, nothing will cause me fear as long as your love enfolds me, for your desire to give is greater than my desire mine to receive

Transform me into yourself, so I may no longer know myself, nor find myself except in you.
