Love is of God; in love his love is known by James Quinn
The first three stanzas echo Galatians 5:22 ‘the fruit of the Spirit is love joy, peace…’
The Spirit is given us in Holy Communion as the gift of Christ, whose Spirit-giving Body is the chosen instrument of all God’s gifts.
The Spirit comes to us also in prayer, and what better prayer than grateful wonder at God’s infinite love and generosity?
