No, we have never
even heard that
there is a Holy Spirit.
[Acts 19:2]
*************************
"I thought the Holy Spirit
was Catholic, Lord."

"I know, child."

"I STILL do.
I can't seem to get away from it."

"From WHAT, child?"

"Huh? Eh, You know;
this thing about the Holy Spirit.
It's just Catholic to me.
The Holy Spirit's always
been Catholic. That's what
the little kids from down the street
used to tell me, when I
was growin' up in Philly."

"Yes. I know, child.
But, I am speaking to you, now.
Do you believe Me?"

"Yeah, I guess.
(silence)
I'm sorry, Lord.
But, You've disappointed me,
so many times. I guess
the worst, has been that
whole Pluto issue. Not to
mention, all those poor
polar bears. What're 'Ya
DOING up There, Lord,
ANYWAY?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.
SMILE.]

"Then, there's all these
Christians ....who think
the world 'a You.
Sometimes, I think
they're a little meshugunah."

[LAUGH!]
"I know, child!"

"They mean well.....but,
they've never been Jewish.
It's not the same thing."

"What isn't, My precious?"

"YOU!
YOU'RE not the same thing!"

"But, I AM, child."

(disgruntled silence)
"Hm......uh, uh.
I don't think so.
The God I grew up with,
was Jewish. And, the
Holy Spirit's Catholic.
That's it, Lord.
That's it."

[LAUGH!]
"And, Jesus,
My child?"

"Eh........Maybe, He's
Protestant.
I'm not sure.
Don't YOU know?
Why are You
asking ME?
THAT'S WEIRD!"

[LAUGH.]
"Yes, child!
It is!"

"Hey, Lord; You're
not supposed 'ta
be talkin' with so
many exclamation marks.
It just isn't YOU."

"You don't know Me,
little one.
You don't know Me,
at all."
***************************
There is one body
and one Spirit,
just as you were called to the
one hope.......
one Lord,
one faith.....
one God
and Father of us all....
[Ephesians 4:4-6]

(Footnote: in the past year,
I've learned that Pluto is not
really a planet after all;
it is now called a 'dwarf'
planet.)
