One of the greatest temptations of the Church is to forget about the Holy Spirit, not to listen to the Spirit, and not to let ourselves be guided and strengthened by the Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is the fire and the wind of God that guides and sustains the Church, the strength of God that consoles and defends us in every circumstance. Only the Holy Spirit can make us courageous and joyful witnesses of Jesus.
Bishop Silvio José Báez, o.c.d.
Auxiliary Bishop of Managua
