Feast of Pentecost, 2009

May 31, 2009

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love!

Today we celebrate one of the great feasts of the Church.  It is particularly special for our family this year because, later this afternoon, our daughter will be baptized.  There could be no more appropriate day!  Iona has, we trust, a long life ahead of her, but nothing in it can surpass the importance of this day.

Casting about for some appropriate music, I find this lovely performance of Thomas Tallis’ If ye love me.
