"Docile to the Holy Spirit”

"We go to the Holy Spirit so that He may grant us his gifts"

"A sure way to be humble is to contemplate how, even without talents, fame or fortune, we can be effective instruments if we go to the Holy Spirit so that He may grant us his gifts. The apostles, though they had been taught by Jesus for three years, fled in terror from the enemies of Christ. But after Pentecost they let themselves be flogged and imprisoned, and ended up giving their lives in witness to their faith." (Furrow, 283)

“Get to know the Holy Spirit”
