Pentecost is coming up very soon. It is a great time to put special emphasis on knowing and being open to the Holy Spirit. Although it was truly an historical event which changed the Apostles dramatically, it is also an on-going event in the life of each soul who tries to hear the Holy Spirit and respond to His call. We discuss how the Holy Spirit is present in the soul. He enters the soul through both actual and sanctifying grace. Our goal is to be possessed by the Holy Spirit, so that He may purify us, strengthen us, enlighten us, and sanctify us. On our part, how is it that we may become more open, more docile to the Holy Spirit? That’s the question we discuss in this program. May the Holy Spirit possess us all!
