BREATH AND BREAD
Reflections on the Holy Spirit

Author: Michele Gallagher

Fire and refreshment, water and light, along with such concepts as the finger of God, ointment as balm, and the Holy Spirit as delight, firebrand and the holy kiss of God are some of the symbols, metaphors and im¬ages used here to gain some insight into the Person and the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives. They are used be¬cause, as creatures seeing "through a glass darkly,” we only have hints and guesses into the unfathomable mystery of the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity. These theological icons represent our relationship to the Holy Spirit — the “immortal diamond” whose infinite refracted lights are cap¬tured best and appreciated most in prayer. Though we re¬ceive the Holy Spirit in Baptism, in each Eucharist Jesus breathes his holy and risen Spirit into each of us in a wholly unique way. As we come to know the Lord Jesus and to experience the Holy Spirit through the Eucharist in a highly intimate and very personal way, they become for us the daily breath and bread of our spiritual lives.
