Pentecost is coming (Part 7)

Sunday 27th May is Pentecost Sunday when (some of) the church around the world celebrate the breathtakingly amazing day when God poured out, giving as a gift to all believers, the Holy Spirit of God. Each day for the next ten days, up to and including May 27th, I shall post a quote about the Holy Spirit and would encourage you to use it as a prayerful meditation, inviting Holy Spirit to come and flow in and through you.

“Some souls think that the Holy Spirit is very far away, far, far, up above. Actually he is, we might say, the divine Person who is most closely present to the creature. He accompanies him everywhere. He penetrates him with himself. He calls him, he protects him. He makes of him his living temple. He defends him. He helps him. He guards him from all his enemies. He is closer to him than his own soul. All the good a soul accomplishes, it carries out under his inspiration, in his light, by his grace and his help.”

He is intangible and invisible. But His work is more powerful than the most ferocious wind. The Spirit brings order out of chaos and beauty out of ugliness. He can transform a sin-blistered man into a paragon of virtue. The Spirit changes people. The Author of life is also the Transformer of life.
