Pentecost

Tuesday, 7 June 2022

The Holy Spirit is God’s loving presence in each of us  and in the community of the Church, the fulfilment of Jesus’ promise to be with us always.

“Who are you, sweet light, that fills me and illumines the darkness of my heart? You lead me like a mother's hand, and should you let go of me, I would not know how to take another step. You are the space that embraces my being and buries it in yourself. Away from you it sinks into the abyss of nothingness, from which you raised it to the light. You, nearer to me than I to myself and more interior than my most interior and still impalpable and intangible and beyond any name: Holy Spirit eternal love!” – St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross  (St. Edith Stein ) Carmelite Nun
