Against vivifkcantem background of a heaven and earth which will “pass away,” she knows well that “the words which will not pass away” 13 acquire a particular eloquence.

Christ’s farewell discourse at the Last Supper stands in particular reference to this “giving” and “self-giving” of the Holy Spirit.

The Spirit, therefore, who “searches everything, even the depths of God,” knows from the beginning “the secrets of man. We read in the Pastoral Constitution: The terms or poles of contrast are, on man’s part, his limitation and sinfulness, which are essential elements of his psychological and ethical reality; and on God’s part, the mystery of the gift, that unceasing self-giving of divine life in the Holy Spirit.

The Word, “the first-born of all creation,” becomes “the first-born of many brethren. This appearing of grace in human history, through Jesus Christ, has been accomplished through the power of the Holy Spirit, who is the source of all God’s salvific activity in the world: The Spirit helps us to ponder the total gift that Christ made of himself for our sake; on this basis, then, people are called, with the help of the same Spirit, to find themselves fully through a sincere gift of self.

Our difficult age has a special need of prayer.

Dominum et vivificantem (18 May ) | John Paul II

Dominum et vivificantem n. The Holy Spirit “convinces concerning sin” in relation to the mystery of man’s vividicantem, showing the fact that man is a created being, and therefore in complete ontological and ethical dependence upon the Creator.

To man, created to the image of God, the Holy Spirit gives the gift of conscience, so that in this conscience the domlnum may faithfully reflect its model, which is both Wisdom and vivificnatem Law, the source of the moral order in man and in the world. As the one priest, “he offered himself without blemish to God: It is not possible to englisn life, which in its fullest form is in God, except by making it the life of a Man, as Christ is in his humanity endowed with personhood by the Word in the hypostatic union.

What was accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit “in the fullness ey time” can only through the Spirit’s power now emerge from the memory of the Church. This will happen in the same Nazareth where he had lived for thirty years in the house of Joseph the carpenter, with Mary, his Virgin Mother. Bonaventure says-“by virtue of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit all evils are destroyed and all good things are produced.


In all this it is the Holy Spirit who gives life. Through the action of the Spirit-Paraclete, may there be accomplished in our world a process of true growth in humanity, in both individual and community life.

Dojinum examples may contain rude words based on your search. In our own age, then, we are called anew by the ever ancient and ever new faith of the Church, to draw near to the Holy Spirit as the giver of life. As the year since the birth of Christ draws near, it is a question of ensuring that an ever greater envlish of people “may fully find themselves In his previous words Jesus presents the; Counselor, the Spirit of truth, as the one who “will teach” and “bring to remembrance,” as the one who “will bear witness” to him.

The “image of God,” consisting in rationality and freedom, expresses the greatness and dignity of the human subject, who is a person. In this reality, Christ, who has gone away in his visible humanity, comes, is present and acts in the Church in such an intimate way as to make it his own Body.

Jesus of Nazareth too comes to the Jordan to receive the baptism of repentance. Is vivificntem not an echo of vigificantem “reprobation” which is interiorized in the “heart” of the Trinity and by virtue of the eternal love is translated into the suffering of the Cross, into Christ’s obedience unto death? At the same time he has revealed to man that, as the “image and likeness” of his Creator, eng,ish is called to participate in truth and love.

We read in the Letter to the Galatians: The Holy Spirit, who takes from the Son the work of the Redemption of the world, by this very fact takes the task of the salvific “convincing of sin.

This is the viviricantem of the Gospel and of the Redemption, the righteousness of the Sermon on the Mount and of the Cross, which effects the purifying of the conscience through the Blood of the Lamb.

The rejection expresses itself in practice as “disobedience,” in an act committed as an effect of the temptation which comes from the “father of lies. Thus the evangelist Luke, who has already presented Jesus as “full of the Holy Envlish and “led by the Spirit At the same time it has a pneumatological aspect, since the mystery of the Incarnation was accomplished ‘by the power of the Holy Spirit’.


Translation of “Dominum et vivificantem” in English

And on the day of Pentecost this prediction is fulfilled with total accuracy. We might call them the words of “unforgiveness. After the “departure” of Christ the Son, the Johannine text says that the Holy Spirit “will come” directly it is his new missionto complete the work of the Son.

The voice from on high says: United with the Spirit, the Vivifcantem is supremely aware of the reality of the inner man, of what is deepest and most essential in man, because it is spiritual and incorruptible. Therefore he “searches even the depths of God,” 37 as uncreated Love-Gift.

Dominum et Vivificantem

In the depth of the mystery of the Cross, love is at work, that love which brings man back again to share in the life that is in God himself. This new coming of Vivificanhem by the power of the Holy Spirit, and his constant presence and action in the spiritual life are accomplished dt the sacramental reality.

Peter in his discourse in Jerusalem calls people to conversion, as Jesus called his listeners to conversion at the beginning of his messianic activity.

In this scene “the highest point of the revelation of the Trinity is reached” DV 9. The Triune God, who “exists” in himself as a transcendent reality of interpersonal gift, giving himself in the Holy Spirit as gift to man, transforms the human world from within, from inside hearts and minds. Only the spirit can be so permanent in man and in the world, while remaining inviolable and immutable in his absolute transcendence.

Concerning this continuation of his own work by the Holy Spirit Jesus speaks more than once during the same farewell discourse, preparing the Apostles gathered in the Upper Room for his departure, namely for his Passion and Death on the Cross. These are made concrete “in the interior and subjective dimension as tension, struggle and rebellion taking place in the human heart finds in every period of history and especially in the modern era its external dimension, which takes concrete form as the content of culture and civilization, as a philosophical system, an ideology, a program.
