Do you want to get closer to God? He wants to get closer to you as well, through His Holy Spirit! The Third Person of the Holy Trinity, as this wonderful little booklet points out is called “The Divine Sanctifier, the Giver of Life and the Spirit of Charity”. Jesus told his Apostles after the Last Supper, (and by extension all of us), that after His death at Calvary “the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and bring to your mind, whatever I have said to you” (John 14:26).
Through the Holy Spirit we may receive wisdom, comfort and God’s Sanctifying Grace dwelling in our souls. This booklet provides clear explanations of the workings of the Holy Spirit and His Seven Gifts for us: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety and Fear of the Lord. And, of course, it also includes some wonderful prayers to help Him guide us on our journey towards Eternal Life. (After all, as this booklet’s authors say “Prayer is the golden key to the treasure chamber of the Holy Spirit”!) These include among others:
- A Hymn to the Holy Spirit
- The Litany of the Holy Spirit
- “Come Holy Spirit”, the famous Sequence of Pentecost
- A Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit
As the authors of this booklet point out “When we are led by the Holy Spirit we cannot go astray. He is our strength and our light. He teaches us to distinguish between truth and falsehood, between good and evil.” They further note that the soul each of us possesses “cannot see, hear, speak, taste, or work without the Holy Spirit.” Let the Third Person of the Holy Trinity enrich your prayer life and help you advance in holiness with the help of this booklet! 70pp. Paperback
