A Homily, Pentecost Sunday, May 31, 2020
Moved by the Spirit
Language is the fundamental tool we have to communicate with others, our thoughts, our feelings, our convictions. Only humans have language reflecting the spiritual powers of the human soul.
When someone says only a couple of words in another person’s language the effect is a delightful smile. Why is that? Language creates a human bond.
So, being able to speak to someone so we are understood is also fundamental to human relations. Imagine if you are speaking to someone and the other person has no idea what you are talking about, and they look at you with that expression of “ha?” or “what?” A feeling of a barrier or division has been created.
For thou hast created us for thyself, and our heart cannot be quieted till it may find repose in thee.
St. Augustine, Confessions 1.1
