"We need to invoke the Holy Spirit constantlyO.It is like being plunged into the deep and not knowing what we will find."
-Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel
Has the Holy Spirit made a difference in your life? Have you relied on his guidance? Looked to him for comfort? Called on him in prayer today? Last year? Ever?
Before he died, Jesus made a remarkable claim: that it was better for us-to our advantage-for him to leave because then God would send his Spirit.
If you have yet to tap into this well-spring of life, or if you have but want to go deeper, Open to the Holy Spirit will give you the tools to move forward.

There is always more to receive of the Holy Spirit's persistent, astonishing presence. As Cardinal Wuerl tells us, the Spirit is the one connection "we know, deep down, we need to make."
