The Eucharistic prayers of mass contain many beautiful phrases. One of my favorite is, “Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like dewfall, so they may become for us the Body and Blood our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eucharistic Prayer II).
Dewfall, the unseen (water vapor in the atmosphere) slowly becomes seen (liquid water droplets).
God often works in our lives like dewfall. He slowly manifests Himself to us. We cannot see Him, yet the effects of His presence in our lives can be seen.
He is the dewfall that sustains us in desert. He is our manna “in the morning dew lay round about the camp, and when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as hoarfrost on the ground” (Exodus 16:13-14).
