Come, Holy Spirit!

Come, Holy Spirit! Enkindle in us the fire of your love! 
We know that this is a bold prayer, with which we ask to be touched by God's flame; but above all we know that this flame and it alone has the power to save us. 
We do not want, in defending our life, to lose eternal life that God wants to give us. 
We need the fire of the Holy Spirit, because only Love redeems. Amen.

Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI
