Spiritus Sancti

That is the name of a little short story that I wrote recently. The title doesn't entirely have anything to do with the story. I just liked it and it comes from I believe one of the Catholic masses but I could be wrong. Hopefully it will be selected for the anthology I attempted to write it for. Earlier today I submitted the mostly cleaned up manuscript. Like the rest of what I've written it is a little different than the usual. 

Back in the 1880's or so it was common to make a death portrait of someone. This portrait would be included in a kind of macabre shrine to the dead person. One thing led to another and my thoughts were directed towards what would happen if one of the subjects came back to life. The idea really interested me and I found it fascinating to the point I got the kernel of an idea for a short story.
