The Sublime Holy Spirit

        Recently, I asked the Holy Spirit to take over my life.  While praying the Novena to the Holy Spirit for one of my intentions, I was totally bowled over by the beauty and warmth of the Holy Spirit.  If Jesus is like a brother to us, then the Holy Spirit is like a best friend, comforting, guiding, and keeping us company.  Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit ~ he dwells deep within our heart, but will engulf and permeate us to the extent we'll let him.  He is simultaneously gentle dove and fiery fire.  What a great blessing to have the Holy Spirit purify, transform, and shape us!
