thought for today

I am a man of hope, not for human reasons nor from any natural optimism, but because I believe the Holy Spirit is at work in the Church and in the World, even when His name remains unheard.

Leon Joseph Suenens
Catholic Cardinal, Belgium

Of course I would prefer "when Her name remains unheard."

I'm with you Robert. To me, the Holy Spirit is best exemplified in the OT as Ruach (the divine wind) and Shekinah (the glory of the Lord that resides in holy objects like the Ark of the Covenant)...both female nouns in Hebrew!
