Lenten Spirit

Today one of my favourite Lenten liturgies from Roddy (once at Mucky Paws… now Listening to the stones)

Ah the Spirit
we know not where she blows
as a breath of wind
she goes wherever she wills

in the gravel of the journey she leaves her footprints

in the cross on the horizon she directs the journey

in the deepening colours of the season she moves between us

in the fading of the light she calls us into the darkness

in the word of foretelling she promises life

in the wilderness of Lent she takes us through.

The Spirit’s flux
we know not where she flows
but may she shift in us
and set our journey once more.
