Commentary on the Gospel of
THE WIND BLOWS WHERE IT PLEASES AND YOU HEAR ITS SOUND BUT YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE IT COMES FROM OR WHERE IT IS GOING. IT IS LIKE THAT WITH EVERYONE WHO IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT.
The mystery of the Blessed Trinity is the most sublime of the mysteries of Christianity. It could not have been invented by any human being. And of the three persons of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is the one who is most unknown, most mysterious and most intriguing. It is the aspect of the Divinity that expresses its being truly MYSTERIUM TREMENDUM. And yet it is the one that gives so much hope. Because we humans tend to create God to our own image and likeness making an idol that will justify what we want to do. But that is exactly where the Holy Spirit cannot be placed: in one’s pocket. Like the wind, She blows where She wills. One cannot predict Her. One cannot manipulate Her to fit one’s mind set. The Holy Spirit can intervene in any hopeless situation. When there seems to be no way out, no solution, the Holy Spirit can surprise us and lead us out of this hopeless situation. SEND FORTH THY SPIRT, AND THEY SHALL BE CREATED AND THOU SHALT RENEW THE FACE OF THE EARTH!
