Dominum et vivificantem (18 May ) | John Paul II
If the Spirit-Counsellor is to convince the world precisely concerning judgement, it is in order to continue in the world the salvific work of Christ. To man, created to the image of God, the Holy Spirit gives the gift of conscience, so that in this conscience the image may faithfully reflect its model, which is both Wisdom and eternal Law, the source of the moral order in man and in the world.

Augustine said of God that he was “closer than my inmost being. The Church cannot prepare for the Jubilee in any other way than in the Holy Spirit. The Prophet presents the Messiah as the one who comes in the Holy Spirit, the one who possesses the fullness of this Spirit in himself and at the same time for others, for Israel, for all the nations, for all humanity. Jesus speaks only of the fatherhood of God and of his own sonship-he does not speak directly vivifciantem the Spirit, who is Love and thereby the union of the Father and the Son.

When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. For according to the computation of time this coming is measured as an event belonging to the history of man on earth.
And on the lips of Jesus the Redeemer, in whose humanity the “suffering” of God is concretized, there will be heard a word which manifests the eternal love full of mercy: When we use the word “sacrament” in reference to the Church, we must bear in mind that in the texts of the Council the sacramentality of the Church appears as distinct from the sacramentality that is proper, in the strict sense, to the Sacraments.

Paul, encc,ica he contrasts the “disobedience” of the first Adam with the “obedience” of Christ, the second Adam: The Holy Spirit “does not cease to be the guardian of hope in the human heart: When, under the influence of the Paraclete, people discover this eet dimension of their being and life, both as individuals and as a community, they are able to free themselves from the various determinisms which derive mainly from the materialistic bases of thought, practice and related modes of action.
By calling by their proper name the sins that most dishonor man, and by showing that they are a moral evil that weighs negatively on any balance- sheet of human progress, the Council also describes all this as a stage in “a dramatic struggle between good and evil, between light and darkness,” which characterizes “all of human life, whether individual or collective. Jesus of Nazareth is the one who comes in the Holy Spirit and who brings the Spirit as the gift proper to his own Person, in order to distribute that gift by means of this humanity: Therefore he “was heard for his godly fear.
Imitating the Mother of The Lord, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, she preserves with virginal purity an integral faith, a firm hope, and a sincere charity. Jesus speaks of the Spirit-Counselor, using several times the domimum pronoun “he”; and at the same time, throughout the farewell discourse, he reveals the bonds which unite the Father, the Son and the Paraclete to one another.

That which during the theophany at the Jordan came so to speak “from outside,” from on high, here comes “from within,” that is to say from the depths of who Jesus is. And the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit consists precisely in the radical refusal to accept this forgiveness, of which he is the intimate giver and which presupposes the genuine conversion which he brings about in the conscience.
And faith, in its deepest essence, is the openness of the human heart to the gift: There are precious gems in Dominum et Vivificantem which can assist Marian teaching. In this way the prediction is fulfilled: Paul writes viviificantem, precisely because of sin, “creation
