You are a Temple of the Holy Spirit

Some points for prayer-

Since the Blessed Trinity is living in you,

you are the temple of God.

You are also a holocaust, a word of unending praise,

a flower of great beauty offered up to God.

Francis Xavier Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan,

The Road to Hope: A Gospel from Prison

Here there is an interiority,

a depth which lies beyond the merely natural,

as far beyond the natural depth of soul

as the "realm" where God is enthroned,

and where our "glory to God in the highest" seeks Him,

and is beyond all thoughts and feelings of natural sublimity.

This interiority has been given to us by Baptism,

and now Christian practice must lift it

beyond the natural world of feeling and thinking.

Romano Guardini,

Learning the Virtues that Lead you to God

The Father spoke one Word, which was his Son,

and his Word he speaks always in eternal silence,

and in silence must it be heard by the soul.

St. John of the Cross,

Sayings of Light and Love


In the heaven of her soul, the praise of glory

has already begun her work of eternity.

Her song is uninterrupted,

for she is under the action of the Holy Spirit

who effects everything in her;

and although she is not always aware of it,

for the weakness of nature does not allow her

to be established in God without distractions,

she always sings, she always adores,

for she has, so to speak,

wholly passed into praise and love

in her passion for the glory of her God.

Blessed Elisabeth of the Trinity,

Heaven in Faith
