Pentecost is very dear to me; I was baptized on this feast, confirmed and houselled. Despite all backslidings, I do consider myself called to have special devotion to the Holy Ghost; for this amongst other reasons I feel an affinity to St Philip Neri, who was so much the faithful instrument of the Third Person of the Trinity.
Veni, Sancte Spiritus!
(My N.Z. trip should see me motoring back to Christchurch to-day. If all goes well, I can attend a Extraordinary Form Vigil Mass at the Cathedral, at 5.30pm...)
