The spirit was meant to soar! Why else is it that the most fitting symbol of the Spirit is a dove or gull. There are moments like flashes that inspire me with thoughts and ideas which, I am convinced, are the whispering, uplifting winds of Your Spirit. In these times I see more clearly the workings of Your Spirit. In these times my inner struggles with institutionalized religion are calmed because, Jesus, what I see is this: that the human constructs of Catholicity and Christianity are the pablum of spiritual growth. Not until our spirits transcend and soar beyond the walls of their perimeters do we become free (as our spirits were meant to be) to see more clearly Your relationship to us and ours to You.
