The Holy Spirit in our Lives

“The Holy Spirit on earth dwells in us,

and He enlightens us.

He gives us to know God.

He gives us to love the Lord.

He stablishes our mind in God.

He bestows on us the gift of words.

He gives us to sing the praises of the Lord.

He gives us joy and gladness.

The Holy Spirit gives us strength to wage war against the enemy, and be victorious.”

(Archimandrite Sophrony, St.Silouan the Athonite, pgs. 431-432)
