I believe in the Holy Spirit

On this page readers should find Catholic Apostolic teaching on I Believe in the Holy Spirit. Some times the essays will be interrelated with “Conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, as the third person of the Holy Trinity is mention twice in the Apostles Creed. This area of theology is somewhat neglected until Pope John Paul II wrote A Catechesis on the Creed and his book three, The Spirit – Giver of Life and Love. John Paul makes a significant contribution some even regard it “Encyclopedia in nature in his reflection on the Holy Spirit. is considered. Although City true to form will continue emphasizing the Early Fathers and doctors of the church, many think this work timely with regard to the Church and to all the false prophets and christian teachings that abound in society circles today, Hopefully City readers will learn what the Holy Spirit is really all about, then you can discern what He is NOT.

The Catholic Catechism gives this statement Article 8, (the eighth statement in the Creed. The paragraphs ccc#687 through ccc#747. cover the topic for deeper understanding of what we believe. the first two are listed below. One more thing, the Holy Spirit was referred to by Jesus Christ in the new testament several times and always as HE, male gender. If you hear from others, a female or something else, well this is not what the Apostles wrote of what Jesus said of the third person on the Holy Trinity.

I believe in the Holy Spirit Article 8

CCC: 687.“No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.”7 Now God’s Spirit, who reveals God, makes known to us Christ, his Word, his living Utterance, but the Spirit does not speak of himself. The Spirit who “has spoken through the prophets” makes us hear the Father’s Word, but we do not hear the Spirit himself. We know him only in the movement by which he reveals the Word to us and disposes us to welcome him in faith. The Spirit of truth who “unveils” Christ to us “will not speak on his own.”8 Such properly divine self-effacement explains why “the world cannot receive [him], because it neither sees him nor knows him,” while those who believe in Christ know the Spirit because he dwells with them.9

ccc#688 The Church, a communion living in the faith of the apostles which she transmits, is the place where we know the Holy Spirit: – in the Scriptures he inspired; – in the Tradition, to which the Church Fathers are always timely witnesses; – in the Church’s Magisterium, which he assists; – in the sacramental liturgy, through its words and symbols, in which the Holy Spirit puts us into communion with Christ; – in prayer, wherein he intercedes for us; – in the charisms and ministries by which the Church is built up; – in the signs of apostolic and missionary life; – in the witness of saints through whom he manifests his holiness and continues the work of salvation.
