“Our faith is not an abstract doctrine or philosophy, but a vital and full relationship with a person: Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God who became man, was put to death, rose from the dead to save us, and is now living in our midst. Where can we encounter him? We encounter him in the Church, in our hierarchical, Holy Mother Church. It is the Church which says today: 'Behold the Lamb of God'; it is the Church, which proclaims him; it is in the Church that Jesus continues to accomplish his acts of grace which are the sacraments.”

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace
and heavenly aid
To fill the hearts which thou has made.
