It has been drawn to my attention that the following verse has appeared in a North Dublin parish newsletter:
Light-hearted Theological Verse
The doctrine of the Trinity
in leaving out of Deity
all trace of femininity.
One of these should be a she
To manifest divinity
required a real nativity
and that required maternity -
a woman's creativity.
Which of the three should be a she?
Since the cosmos needs a hostess
Father, Son and Holy Ghostess!
I think such an eventuality would have profound theological and graphical implications.
At the very least it would require adjustment of some of the illustrations of the annunciation where the Holy Spirit is shown as the putative impregnator of Mary.
The only legitimate candidate left, perhaps appropriately enough, would then be the Father.
