Before the cross | Come, Holy Spirit, Come bring us joys that never end

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson attended a reception for “Vatican Splendors: A Journey Through Faith and Art,” May 14 at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park. Joining the archbishop for a photo were: Dr. Ambrogio M. Piazzoni, vice prefect of the Vatican Library; Msgr. Roberto Zagnoli, exhibition curator; Robert Archibald, president of the Missouri Historical Society; Archbishop Pietro Sambi, apostolic nuncio to the United States; and Msgr. Luis Cuna Ramos, archivist for the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith.

The Sequence for Pentecost Sunday, Veni, Sancte Spiritus, completes our reflection on the joy of Easter by calling on the third person of the Blessed Trinity to come into our hearts bringing light for our darkness, comfort for our distress, healing for our soul's sickness, warmth for our frozen hearts and joys that will never end.
