Come, to Greenwood, Mississippi, Oh Holy Spirit!

The Kindergarten students of St. Francis School in Greenwood, MS enjoyed making the Spirit alive and active with their dove kites.  As part of their religion class, they considered how the wind in invisible to the eye, but its effects are quite evident.  So it is with the Spirit.  See the joy of celebrating the Spirit!

Come, O Holy Spirit, come! From Your bright and blissful Home Rays of healing light impart.

Come, Father of the poor, Source of gifts that will endure Light of ev’ry human heart.


A dove kite waits to be claimed by little hands.

A dove kite waits to be claimed by little hands.

O most blessed Light divine, Let Your radiance in us shine, And our inmost being fill.

Bend the stubborn heart and will,

Melt the frozen, warm the chill,

Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who in You, Trust with childlike piety, Deign Your sevenfold gift to send. 
Give them virtue’s rich increase, Saving grace to die in peace, Give them joys that never end.

Amen. Alleluia!

(Text from the Sequence for Pentecost)
