Excerpt from The Divine Paraclete: A Short Series of Sermons Upon the Person and Office of the Holy Ghost
Who draws true souls to Himself more and more. The world of faith is His kingdom, where the realities Of divine revelation are felt and appreciated. By Him we are taken out of the world of sense, and taught to live the true life which is in God. To Him we owe all our supernatural being, from its first beginning to its glorious end. Deep should be our gratitude and ardent our devotion to this blessed Spirit, by whose breath we are new born, and by whose strength our souls are made meet for the inheritance of light. The whole economy of grace is found in this devo tion, and in the knowledge which ﬂows from it. The church, with all its gifts, is the sphere of the sanctifying energy of the Holy Ghost and no one can properly believe in the person and office of the divine Paraclete who does not receive the Catholic Church as the body of Christ, and enter by the open door.
