How Do You Meet a Franciscan Sister: Pentecost Window Reflection

Paul Keggington

June 08, 2014

‘On the road’ during the novena of Pentecost, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity found a perfect Pentecost window. Possibly you see it every time you worship or you celebrated an important occasion in this sacred space. It is a stained glass window at Sacred Heart Parish, Reedsburg, WI.

Here is a stained glass depiction of the coming of the Holy Spirit.  See more by clicking on their website virtual tour.Pentecost Window Sacred Heart Reedsburg WI

Pray with us Veni Sancti Spiritus:

Come, O Holy Spirit, come!

From Your bright and blissful Home

Rays of healing light impart.

Come, Father of the poor,

Source of gifts that will endure

Light of ev’ry human heart.

You of all consolers best,

Of the soul most kindly Guest,

Quick’ning courage do bestow.

In hard labor You are rest,

In the heat You refresh best,

And solace give in our woe.

O most blessed Light divine,

Let Your radiance in us shine,

And our inmost being fill.

Nothing good by man is thought,

Nothing right by him is wrought,

When he spurns Your gracious Will.

Cleanse our souls from sinful stain,

Lave our dryness with Your rain,

Heal our wounds and mend our way.

Bend the stubborn heart and will,

Melt the frozen, warm the chill,

Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who in You,

Deign Your sevenfold gift to send.

Give them virtue’s rich increase,

Saving grace to die in peace,

Give them joys that never end. Amen.
