Precious love

Holy Spirit, that perfect love between God, our Father, and Jesus, His fully human, fully divine Son.

A love in which the child adores, trusts implicitly, honors and obeys the Father,
While the Father cherishes His Child with affection
So sweet,
So precious,
Filled with protection and guidance,
Support and loving correction.

As we watch from a distance,
The Father’s and Child’s eyes meet.
He seals his love with a kiss on the Son’s forehead.
The Son wraps His little fingers around His Father’s finger,
Shuts His eyes, falling into an innocent, trusting sleep.

And in a deep shared sigh,
Father and Son release their collective breath,
The Son, warm and secure in the Father’s arms.
The Father, relaxed, confident, at peace,
Even as he is forever more at watch over the Son.

Fill us today, Holy Lord, with Your loving Spirit.
