"We go to the Holy Spirit so that He may grant us his gifts"

"A sure way to be humble is to contemplate how, even without talents, fame or fortune, we can be effective instruments if we go to the Holy Spirit so that He may grant us his gifts. The apostles, though they had been taught by Jesus for three years, fled in terror from the enemies of Christ. But after Pentecost they let themselves be flogged and imprisoned, and ended up giving their lives in witness to their faith." (Furrow, 283)

Get to know the Holy Spirit, the great Unknown, on whom depends your sanctification.

Don't forget that you are God's temple. The Advocate is in the center of your soul: listen to Him and be docile to his inspirations. The Way, 57

Alone! You are not alone. We are keeping you close company from afar. Besides..., the Holy Spirit, living in your soul in grace -- God with you -- is giving a supernatural tone to all your thoughts, desires and actions. The Way, 273

Invoke the Holy Spirit in your examination of conscience so that you may get to know God better, and yourself also. In this way you will be converted each day. The Forge, 326

There are three important things you need to do to draw people to God. Forget yourself, and think only of the glory of your Father God. Subject your will filially to the Will of Heaven, as Jesus Christ taught you. Follow with docility the lights of the Holy Spirit. Furrow, 793

This is what Our Lord wants, for we need it if we are to follow him closely. There is no other way. This is the work of the Holy Spirit in each soul -- in yours. Be docile and present no obstacles to God, until he makes your poor flesh like that of Jesus on the Cross. Furrow, 978
