penetrating moment

Some souls think that the Holy Spirit is very far away,
far, far, up above
Actually he is, we might say,
the divine Person who is most closely present to the creature.
He penetrates him with himself.
He calls him,
he protects him.
He makes of him his living temple.
He defends him.
He helps him.
He guards him from all his enemies.
He is closer to him than his own soul.
All the good a soul accomplishes,
it carries out under his inspiration,
in his light,
by his grace
and his help
