"Every Catholic serious about the spiritual life needs to read this profound and beautiful book, and meditate upon it." Fr. Benedict Groeschel
"I highly recommend True Devotion to the Holy Spirit to all those who would participate in the Church's mission to sanctify the world." John Cardinal O'Connor
Huge in scope, yet simple and readable, True Devotion to the Holy Spirit covers virtually everything there is to know about the Spirit's role in our salvation -- and it does so with a refreshing reliance on God's Word, not on opinions or subjective visions.
Luis M. Martinez, the former Archbishop of Mexico City, maintains that as the Spirit is God's supreme gift, so your devotion to Him should be profound and encompassing. In beautiful, practical terms, Martinez illuminates the difference the Spirit can make when He's given His proper place in your soul. This handbook explains how you should respond to the Spirit, how the Spirit helps you grow in virtue, and the characteristics of true love of the Spirit.
All the actions of the Holy Spirit -- in detail
Even more, each of the Spirit's gifts and fruits get detailed treatment here. Martinez shows how each contributes to the maturing of the soul, so that by means of the Spirit's active help, you can conquer your sins, learn how to make proper use of the things of this world, become master of yourself, and fully realize the greatness that is available to you as a Christian. This is an essential guide for everyone who longs to know and to love the Holy Spirit more fully.
You'll learn virtually everything we can know about the Holy Spirit's work in the world and in your soul, including:

WOW! This book is absolutely incredible! Please, please, please anyone who wants to know more about the Holy Spirit, to come to a deeper understanding of Him and His action in our lives, read this book! It is so beautifully written - I have not come across a better book than this about the Holy Spirit. It is phenomenal and will change your life. That being said, it is not a light read. It requires thought, prayer, and contemplation but it is so worth it as it soaked in the Spirit's richness. A MUST READ!!!
If you are tired of the lite and mediocre version of religion so much in vogue, and area ready to see your spiritual life elevated to a completely new plateau, do order this book and embark into the spiritual adventure of your eternal life. You do need a basic Catholic spiritual grounding so you can resist the temptation to put aside this book because it talks about things that clash with your preconceived notions. You need to be ready to leave the turkeys on the ground and spiritually soar like an eagle and not be afraid of the the crosses that are inevitably associated with this devotion. If you spend the time to learn from this book and put it into practice in your life, God will reward you as you can not imagine.
