Pentecost is just around the corner on May 28th, and this season is atime to reflect on the Holy Spirit and how He moves in our lives. When we prepared for our Confirmation, we learned about the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit. As we look forward to Pentecost, the birthday of the Church and the day the Holy Spirit descended on the apostles in Jerusalem, it is a great time to refresh what we know about the Paraclete. Here are 10 quotes from Catholic saints about the Holy Spirit to fuel your prayer this Pentecost!

10 Catholic Saint Quotes about the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete

  • "But it is God who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us, by putting his seal on us and giving us his Spirit in our hearts as a first installment." —St. Paul
  • "O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams." —St. Augustine
  • "Keep to the ancient way and custom of the Church, established and confirmed by so many Saints under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And live a new life. Pray, and get others to pray, that God not abandon His Church, but reform it as He pleases, and as He sees best for us, and more to His honor and glory." —St. Angela Merici
  • “According to the degree to which the intellect is stripped of the passions, the Holy Spirit initiates the intellect into the mysteries of the age to be.”  —St. Thalassios the Libyan
  • “Virtues are formed by prayer. Prayer preserves temperance. Prayer suppresses anger. Prayer prevents emotions of pride and envy. Prayer draws into the soul the Holy Spirit, and raises man to Heaven.” —St. Ephram
  • “If we approach with faith, we too will see Jesus... for the Eucharistic table takes the place of the crib. Here the Body of the Lord is present, wrapped not in swaddling clothes but in the rays of the Holy Spirit.” —St. John Chrysostom
  • “Enrich your soul in the great goodness of God: The Father is your table, the Son is your food, and the Holy Spirit waits on you and then makes His dwelling in you.” —St. Catherine of Siena
  • “Those whose hearts are pure are temples of the Holy Spirit.” —St. Lucy
  • “He pours light into our minds, arouses our desire and gives us strength… As the soul is the life of the body, so the Holy Spirit is the life of our souls.”  —St. Peter Damian
  •  “Come, Holy Spirit. Spirit of truth, you are the reward of the saints, the comforter of souls, light in the darkness, riches to the poor, treasure to lovers, food for the hungry, comfort to those who are wandering; to sum up, you are the one in whom all treasures are contained. Come! As you descended upon Mary that the Word might become flesh, work in us through grace as you worked in her through nature and grace. Come! Food of every chaste thought, fountain of all mercy, sum of all purity. Come! Consume in us whatever prevents us from being consumed in you.” —St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi
