The Holy Spirit

Renewing the Face of the Earth
    About the book

    On numerous occasions leaders of the Catholic Church have acknowledged the action of the Holy Spirit in the Focolare Movement. In 1946 the archbishop of Trent, Carlo de Ferrari, recognized the action of the Holy Spirit with these now famous word: “Here there is the finger of God.” This expression echoes the Gospel of Luke 2 and the ninth century hymn, “Come Holy Spirit,” and therefore refers to the presence of the Holy Spirit.

    This book aims to reveal to the reader the Spirit’s incomparable gifts, his joy, his strength, his consolation and to ignite the ardor of being united with this “unknown God” in renewing the face of the earth.
