Please join Canon Pat Browne and Patrick van der Vorst in this short film as we pray to the Holy Spirit, using Art.
The Holy Spirit is not a thing. The Holy Spirit is a Person. Someone we can relate to as one person to another.
As human beings we use images to make the Holy Spirit understandable. We need to express the Infinite in a way for our finite minds to understand. These images are not just random. In sacred Scripture, the Holy Spirit gets described as water, breath, fire, a dove, a stream… each image telling us something about who the Holy Spirit is as a person.
This rich texture of images that speaks to our mind and hearts takes us to a deeper level within us where the Holy Spirit dwells. That is where are art can help us understand the depths of our existence.
Thank you for joining us in prayer in this 25-minute video.
