Veni Sancti Spiritus: Come Holy Spirit By: Emilee Macías Period: J

When you are baptized in the name of the lord you receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us by guiding us to make the right choices. It helps us follow in Jesus' footsteps.

The disciples heard Jesus command them to wait for a promised baptism of the Holy Spirit that would empower them to be witnesses (Acts 1:4-5). The gift of the Holy Spirit can come upon not only individuals, but also upon groups (Acts 2:4, 4:31, 10:44).


The Holy Spirit and God had sent Jesus down to sent an example to one. Jesus' life is the way we should all live. He died to save us from sin, yet most people go against Him and deny Him. He loves everyone even though who do not believe in Him or His works.

"The One whom the Father has sent into our hearts, the Spirit of his Son, is truly God. Consubstantial with the Father and the Son, the Spirit is inseparable from them, in both the inner life of the Trinity and his gift of love for the world. In adoring the Holy Trinity, life-giving, consubstantial, and indivisible, the Church's faith also professes the distinction of persons. When the Father sends his Word, he always sends his Breath. In their joint mission, the Son and the Holy Spirit are distinct but inseparable. To be sure, it is Christ who is seen, the visible image of the invisible God, but it is the Spirit who reveals him." This quote explains

During Pentecost all of Jesus' disciples were able to speak a different language fluently without learning it because of the presents of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works wonders.

“Acts describes how the Holy Spirit descended on those in the room in the form of “tongues of fire.”

Immediately, being “filled with the Holy Spirit” (Act 2:4), the Apostles, and especially Peter, began speaking about Jesus to all the Jews who were in the city from many regions of the Roman Empire. Even though the pilgrims spoke in several different languages, they understood what the Apostles were saying. (Ava Maria Press page. 27)

In John 14, for example, Jesus says the Holy Spirit will comfort us when we're hurting. "I will not leave you as orphans," Jesus says (14:18), promising that the Spirit will bring us peace (14:27).

The Holy Spirit is present in the church even when you do not think it is. When you are praying and thinking no one is listening the Holy Spirit is, it is almost like a guarding angel.

The Church professes her faith in the Holy Spirit as "the Lord, the giver of life." She professes this in the Creed which is called Nicene- Constantinopolitan from the name of the two Councils-of Nicaea (A.D. 325) and Constantinople (A.D. 381)-at which it was formulated or promulgated. It also contains the statement that the Holy Spirit "has spoken through the Prophets."

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and till the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

This is the pattern for us in the New Testament church. Speaking in tongues is identified with someone who is baptized in the Holy Spirit. The only exception is (Acts 8), where the Holy Spirit did not choose to focus specifically on speaking in other tongues, but left with no doubt that there was any visible evidence that this really had happened.

“St. Augustine explained that “what the soul is to the human body, the Holy Spirit is to the Body of Christ, which is the Church” (Sermo 267). It is the Holy Spirit’s role to help you share in the life of the Holy Trinity.” (Ava Maria Press page 29)

A contemporary example of the Holy Spirit's presence in the church is that when you pray you are not only talking to God and Jesus but also the Holy Spirit because they are all one person. Most people only believe in a god and not all three, they believe that they are all different people. That is not true they are all one. They all different but they are different parts of one person. When we are baptized we receive the Holy Spirit.

The role of the Apostels were to spread the word and good news of God. Help others, serve others, heal the sick, and visit those in need. Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit came the the disciples and they spoke all different languages fluently.

Looking at all the information I have grathered this relates to me because at some point in my life I did not think the Holy Spirit and Jesus were one person. I did not even think any of it was real. But after looking at all this information and evidence it has changed my mind. The conclusion I drew from this project is that the Holy Spirit is everywhere in different places, times, and in different shapes.

The challenges I experienced in making this project was that it was very hard to find reliable information on the subject I was looking for. The questions I had in making this project and gathering this information were "Did this really happen?" "Why is that happen that way?" A specific fact that I learned from this project is that the Holy Spirit comes in many different ways and shapes.
