“To be filled with the Spirit is eminently practical, because it means that we are motivated by something different than what motivates the world. We are motivated by re-creation. We are being created anew by Christ. We are growing in love. We are growing in humility. We are growing in courage, in strength, in boldness for Christ. These are all things that are visible and knowable in ourselves and in others.”
(Fr Andrew Damick, ‘Pentecost is the Re-Creation of Mankind’)
