 The Holy Spirit: And the Life of Grace

One of the most profound aspects of the Catholic faith is that Christ sent his Spirit to dwell in the hearts of the baptized. Christ’s Spirit within us conforms us ever more to Christ, so that we can say with St. Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”

SESSION QUESTIONS

When did Jesus give the gift of the Holy Spirit?

Scripture tells us that Jesus gave the gift of the Holy Spirit when He visited the Apostles after His Resurrection in the Upper Room. It also tells us that the Holy Spirit came down upon the disciples at Pentecost. The gift of the Holy Spirit is a Resurrection gift of the very life of God that we also receive through each of the Sacraments; it unites us with God, it offers the assurance that sin is forgiven. It also calls us and empowers us to share in Jesus’ saving mission.
