A REFLECTIONApril 27, 2014
“You are built upon the foundation of the apostles
and prophets with Christ Jesus himself as the chief corner stone.
In him the whole structure is closely fitted together and
grows into a temple holy in the Lord; in him you too are being built
together into a dwelling place for God in the Spirit” —St. Paul
“So that she (the Church) can fulfill her mission,
the Holy Spirit ‘bestows upon [the Church] varied hierarchic and
charismatic gifts, and in this way directs her’” (Lumen
the soul is to the human body, the Holy Spirit is to the Body of
Christ, which is the Church.”— St. Augustine (En.)
The Holy Spirit
is “the principle of every vital and truly saving action in each
part of the Body” — (Pius XII,
Mystici Corporis, DS 3808).
The Twelve Apostles and their successors (the Bishops) are
the foundation on which Our Lord built his Church. The Bishops and
priests (their assistants) protect the purity of the truths and
commandments and teach them to the faithful. The Holy Spirit
involves Himself in that process to enable the shepherds to teach
the faithful without errors and help the sheep (the faithful) to
accept correctly and put into practice what they learn in their
The Holy Spirit is constantly and essentially at work on
both sides: the shepherds and the faithful.
Without the Holy Spirit’s enlightening, warnings, and
encouraging, it will be impossible for us to lead a correct spiritual
life that will lead us to salvation and eternal life.
If anyone becomes a member of the Church, but does not pray and
puts aside the promptings and energization by the Holy Spirit from his
process of making decisions and choices but follows his own will and
volition only, he is not really practicing the life as a child of God,
a disciple of Jesus, or a faithful member of the Church.
Deism is the
system of thought which admits that God exists, but holds that once He
has made the world, He leaves it alone.
Thus, Deism denies revelation, miracles, providence, the
necessity of worship and prayer. Deism
was popular in England and other countries in the late 17th
century. In fact, however,
this erroneous thought is widely spread in disguise and in varying
degrees in our own time in many countries, even among some theologians
and their followers in the Catholic Church.
As they deny God’s continuing presence and action in the
human history, they are despising God’s Will and defying His Work.
By excluding the powerful work of the Holy Spirit, they are
trying to turn the Catholic Church into a human religion (like many
other religions) and block the way to sanctification and salvation, as
without the work of the Holy Spirit there cannot be sanctification or
