“The Spirit comes gently and makes himself known by his fragrance. He is not felt as a burden, for he is light, very light. Rays of light and knowledge stream before him as he approaches. The Spirit comes with the tenderness of a true friend and protector to save, to heal, to teach, to counsel, to strengthen, to console.” (St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Bishop, Early Church Father, Confessor and Doctor of the Church, De Spiritu Sancto)
March 18 is the Optional Memorial of St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Bishop, Early Church Father, Confessor and Doctor of the Church (ca. A.D. 313 – 386).
