The Spirit comes gently

MountainsThe Spirit comes gently and makes himself known by his fragrance. He is not felt as a burden, for he is light, very light. Rays of light and knowledge stream before him as he approaches. The Spirit comes with the tenderness of a true friend and protector to save, to heal, to teach, to counsel, to strengthen, to console.
St. Cyril of Jerusalem

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
