The Scent of Paradise

This Sunday the Church will remember and celebrate Pentecost. As we approach Sunday I pray that we take some time this week and prayerfully think through the wonder of the Spirit of God who tabernacles within us.

When the blessed apostles

were gathered together,

the place shook

and the scent of Paradise,

having recognized its home,

poured forth its perfumes,

delighting the heralds

by whom

the guests are instructed

and come to his banquet;

eagerly he awaits their arrival

for he is the Lover of mankind.

Hymns of Paradise; Ephrem the Syrian
