Pentecost Sunday

Come, O Holy Spirit, come!
From Your bright and blissful Home
Rays of healing light impart.

Come, Father of the poor,
Source of gift that will endure
Light of ev'ry human heart.

You of all consolers best,
Of the soul most kindly guest,
Quick'ning courage do bestow.

In hard labor You are rest,
In the heat You refresh best,
And solace give in to our woe.

O most blessed Light divine,
Let Your radiance in us shine,
And our inmost being fill.

Nothing good by man is thought,
Nothing right by him is wtought,
When he spurns Your gracious Will.

Cleanse our souls from sinful stain,
Lave our dryness with Your rain,
Heal our wounds and mend our way.

Bend the stubborn heart and will,
Melt the frozen, warm the chill,
Guide the steps that go astray.

On the faithful who in You,
Trust childlike piety,
Deign Your sevenfold gift to send.

Give them virtue's rich increase,
Saving grace to die in peace,
Give them joys that never end.

For a long time I have followed and really enjoyed your blog about freak waves, rogue waves, as well as wind generated waves in general.

But enough about your bulls**t political ideas!

STOP TALKING POLITICS. You are not an expert on the subject and I can get your kind of political discussion at thousands of other web sites.

Or start a separate blog on politics.

Just talk about waves man. That is what you are good at doing.

Dear A Friend,

Thank you so much for your advice. I got your point, loud and clear. As the science world has been so much contaminated by the voodoo, pseudosciences exploited by politicians to stretching their agenda, while the media act mainly as willing instruments cheer-leading for those politicians, and many scientist will just make do for funding, I feel compelled to express some of the dismay I felt. This is a personal blog of, by, and for myself. I don't see the need that I should follow a guide line at this time. I do freaque waves mainly, I expect to continue inserting my other viewpoints from time to time when I deemed appropriate with no apology.
