NEWSLETTER INSERT - ON THE DIFFERENCE THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES



‘Without the Holy Spirit: God is far away, Christ stays in the past, the Gospel is a dead letter, the Church is simply an organisation, authority simply a matter of propaganda, liturgy no more than an evocation, Christian living a slave morality.

But with the Holy Spirit: the cosmos is resurrected and groans with the birth-pangs of the Kingdom, the risen Christ is present, the Gospel is the power of life, the Church shows forth the life of the Trinity, authority is a liberating service, mission is a Pentecost, the liturgy is both memorial and anticipation, human action is deified’.


Ignatius of Litakia
