"Simple in himself, the Spirit is manifold in his mighty works.
The whole of his being is present to each individual; the whole
of his being is present everywhere. Though shared in by many,
he remains unchanged; his self-giving is no loss to himself. Like
the sunshine, which permeates all the atmosphere, spreading
over land and sea, and yet is enjoyed by each person as though it
were for him alone, so the Spirit pours forth his grace in full
measure, sufficient for all, and yet is present as though
exclusively to everyone who can receive him. To all creatures
that share in him he gives a delight limited only by their own
nature, not by his ability to give." (St Basil the Great) According
to God's revelation, we are called to be filled with the Spirit.
What does that mean? In Baptism we became a Temple of the
Holy Spirit. God living in us and we living in God. As such, we
are called to follow the lead of the Spirit, being aware of and
acting on his inspirations. Being the Spirit of truth, he will guide
us into the truth of our authentic identity as a son or daughter of
God, out of which we choose to live and act. Come, Holy Spirit,
come!
