I delight in you
So taken with you
I sink my love’s Fire
Deep within you !
Be steeped in the Fire of the Dove.
Your womb exults, O worthy daughter
Bless the sea Make it holy water
Infused by the Dawn,
Bring forth the Sun
Exult like the grass the Dew is nestled on.
So full of ecstacy is your body
It resounds with Heavens’ symphony.
That is how it is with you, Mary,
Mother of all Joy.
~originally a song by Shawn (me) and my husband, Marc Blaze Pauc
with (italicised) words of St. Hildegard
Come Holy Spirit, infuse us, body and soul with the consuming Fire of Your Divine Love bringing about all healing and the transformation of every faculty to Your Divine Order and intention. Anoint us with Your Holy Peace and help us to listen to Your voice in our hearts guiding us.
Lord of all Love and Wisdom and creative power, we never know how we are to pray but Your power is never limited by our perceptions. For this we are grateful.
Holy Spirit, Your inexpressible groanings intercede for us to the Father and are our true prayer. We know that You understand our hearts and our situations in life, and we open our hearts more and more to You.
Spirit of Hope, pour out Your gracious hope into our hearts and strengthen us.
Mary, Mother of all Joy and Bride of the Spirit, intercede for us that we may receive with joy all the graces the Holy Spirit wishes to give us with pure and open hearts.
May we be steeped in the Fire of the Dove.
