Holy Spirit in Our Lives

Holy Spirit makes us receptive to God; he teaches us to pray and to love God & our neighbor.

St. Augustine calls the Holy Spirit, “The quiet guest of our soul.” Often, those who desire His presence must seek times of quietness, for it is in silence that we can hear “the soft, still voice” of God.

The more receptive we are to the Holy Spirit in us, the sooner he will bestow the “fruits” of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

CCC 290-310

Strengthens our Baptism

The Gift of the Holy Spirit is the strength from above in which we are called to put the grace of our Baptism into practice through the example of both words and deeds; acting as “witnesses” for Christ.CCC 1302-1305

I am created to do or be something for which no one else is created; I have a place in God’s counsels, in God’s world, which no one else has… God knows me and has called me by name.” Bl. John Henry Newman
