The Wide, Wide World of Theology! A Poem

Veni,
Sancte Spiritus
Fiery Spirit of Love,
Come, O Lover of the Poor.
Give us your warmth, in this land of chill.
Come, Comforter of Us All,
breathe your life into
our brittle
bones.
Inflame our hearts.
Give us your gifts.
Knowledge, Wisdom,
Understanding, Courage.
Reverence, Right Judgment
and Wonder and Awe in your presence
Send us out on your Spirit wings to the ends of the earth.
Warm all in our path with
your flame in our
hearts.Copyright © 2009, The Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University . All rights reserved.
