Both Holy Spirit and Dodge are better. Holy Spirit's damage rating is misleading in stage use since often times, it ends up hitting 7 times or so, which means the total damage is more like 9-10 times the listed damage. Usually, my Holy Spirit's last two hits does 100+ in stages, and it's level 6. Dodge is better because you'll use it to end combos most often. Later on, you may even use it to link attacks. Personally, I see far more use from these than Tears, but Tears is a great spell. I would definitely put more points to it if I could spare them.
