Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Photo taken by Sr. M. Emmanuel Alves, fsp

Franciscan Father Richard Rohr wrote this prayer to the Holy Spirit for the recovery of the contemplative mind and heart. While new, it’s written in one of my favorite traditional prayer-forms–a litany. Many of these titles of the Holy Spirit are unusual, but their very freshness prompt me to stop and ponder. (Note that many of the images are taken from St. Paul and the Gospel of John.) I invite you to pray with it the next time you begin to work creatively. And thank you, Father Richard, for posting it.
