The Greatness of the Spirit

“What does the Spirit do?  His works are ineffable in majesty, and innumerable in quantity.  How can we even ponder what extends beyond the ages?  What did He do before creation began?  How great are the graces He showered on creation?  What power will he wield in the age to come?  He existed; He pre-existed; He co-existed with the Father and the Son before the ages.  Even if you can imagine anything beyond the ages, you will discover that the Spirit is even further beyond.”
(St. Basil the Great)

What is prayer?

“Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart or soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God hath promised, or according to the Word, for the good of the church, with submission, in faith, to the will of God.”
(John Bunyan)
