Love divine…

Come down, O Love divine!
seek thou this soul of mine
and visit it with thine own ardour glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
within my heart appear,
and kindle it, your holy flame bestowing.

The words of this well known hymn just popped into my head as I woke this morning. I have to say that this is not a usual occurence, but I always take note when it does!

The opening words of the hymn immediately focus our attention on the Holy Spirit; God’s active agent in the world and in our lives. The hymn reminds us that it is the Spirit who makes real the love of God in our hearts and souls; now and forever.

I simply want to leave you with the opening words, and allow you to experience love Divine.

The Lord bless you and keep you, and make his face to shine upon you.
