Laser Engraving: Veni Sancte Spiritus
I've had a special devotion to the Holy Spirit for the past year or so, and have always been inspired by the Pentecost Sequence that is said at Mass for us Roman Catholics, which begins with the words "Veni, Sancte Spiritus, et emitte caelitus lucis tuae radium," which translates roughly as "Come, Holy Spirit, send forth the heavenly radiance of your light." It's a favorite of mine. This past Pentecost I was doing my thing at Sunday mass, and I couldn't stop thinking, "Wouldn't it be cool if I did a Holy Spirit engraving?" Well, I'm not 100% sure, but I think the Spirit was responsible for that idea. So this is my own take on the usual dove imagery.
This one will also be available for sale on my shop some time soon, although it needs a few minor tweaks before I do. Look for it soon.
