Dec. 14, 2016 (Is 46:6c-8, 18, 21c-25)

“Let justice descend, O heavens, like dew from above.” This is a beautiful image- not one of strength or power but one of gentle yet tangible mystery. It is an image of the Holy Spirit. At mass, in Eucharistic Prayer II, we pray that the Holy Spirit descend upon the bread and wine “like dewfall from above.” Like dewfall, let us become visible signs of God’s presence in the world.
