Spiritus Ubi Vult Spirat

The title of this painting stems from the Latin version of a snippet of John 3:8 (“the Spirit blows where it will”).  Here we have another “sinful woman”.  She has not made a spiritual move towards God.  But God’s Spirit (symbolized by a descending dove) has her in His sites.  Nobody can tell the Holy Ghost to whom he may or may not come.  But we know that He comes to sinners, and that therefore, none of us is quite safe from his quickening ray.

The Holy Ghost descends upon an unlikely "victim" while others go on drinking.
