St. Hildegard’s Advent Meditation Series, part II.

This is the second meditation in St. Hildegard’s Advent Meditation Series. 

Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is a Burning Spirit
It kindles
the hearts of humankind.
Like tympanum and lyre it plays them,
gathering volume in the temple of the soul.

Holy Spirit is
all movement.

Root of all being.

Purifier of all impurity.

Absolver of all faults.

Balm of all wounds.

Radiant life, worthy of all praise,
The Holy Spirit resurrects and awakens
everything that is.
 – St. Hildegard of Bingen
From Meditations With Hildegard of Bingen by Gabrielle Uhlein.


May the Holy Spirit gather volume in your soul during this Advent season.

In Viriditas,
