Our Founding Charism: Receptivity and commitment to the person and culture of the Holy Spirit, particularly in covenant love.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son, he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
1 Corinthians 6:11
You were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
2 Corinthians 3: 18
And all of us, with unveiled faces, gazing on the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, by the Lord, the Spirit.
1 Peter 1:2
You have been chosen and destined by God the Father and sanctified by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ and to be sprinkled with his blood: May grace and peace be yours in abundance.
Those whose hearts are pure are temples of the Holy Spirit.
O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.
Saint Catherine of Siena
Enrich your soul in the great goodness of God: The Father is your table, the Son is your food, and the Holy Spirit waits on you and then makes His dwelling in you.
Saint Peter Damian
As the soul is the life of the body, so the Holy Spirit is the life of our souls.
Saint Mary Magdalene de Pazzi
Come, Holy Spirit. Spirit of truth, you are the reward of the saints, the comforter of souls, light in the darkness, riches to the poor, treasure to lovers, food for the hungry, comfort to those who are wandering; to sum up, you are the one in whom all treasures are contained. Come! As you descended upon Mary that the Word might become flesh, work in us through grace as you worked in her through nature and grace. Come! Food of every chaste thought, fountain of all mercy, sum of all purity. Come! Consume in us whatever prevents us from being consumed in you.
Saint John Paul
The Divine Spirit is not only a light which illumines by giving knowledge and prompting prophecy, but also a force which sanctifies. God's Spirit communicates holiness, because he himself is "a spirit of holiness," the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, desires to re-create and transform you into the likeness of Christ.
