"The Holy Spirit proceeds from the loving, eternal, reciprocal gaze between
Father and Son. The Spirit is that 'fire of Love'
that is enkindled between
them and seals their relationship from and for all eternity
. Thus it is through
the baptismal gift of the Holy Spirit that life and love are enkindled within
us."From Chapter One
Enkindled: Holy Spirit, Holy Gifts brings the Spirit, through anecdote
and example, into the lives of ordinary people. This treatment of the "neglected
middle child" of the Blessed Trinity is for people who reflect while commuting
to work, for those who pray while the baby is sleeping, for those who belong
to parish discussion groups and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults,
for those preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation and for those who
celebrate the divine generosity of the Gift-giving Spirit. Small groups or individuals
will find valuable the prayers and reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
