Ascencion to Pentecost Novena Day 6


How long, Lord? How long?

It seems we wait forever and while we fumble and fuss, do we really know how to pray? You have left us in body, yet you are with us always. How do we understand this?

You say you are sending The Advocate, The Spirit, but how will we know when the Spirit arrives? And will the Spirit truly enlighten us?

Here we are, can’t go back and yet can’t get to where we need to be. It is frustrating and maddening.

God how are we to possibly ever understand you? And why should we bother to try? Things happen that just make no sense and in fact they make me scream with the injustice of it all.

These days move along like molasses and my hope runs thin.

How long, Lord? How long?

(This post was written in honor of Terri-Lynn. She was a friend of a friend and she just died. May she rest in peace. Prayers for the 10 year old son she leaves behind.)

I can’t even play the song tonight, I just can’t.

Veni Sancte Spiritus.
