The Spirit of God

To help us better understand the Spirit of God, the Church uses many different titles and symbols. We know the Holy Spirit as Comforter, Helper, Advocate, and Paraclete.

Some of the symbols the Church uses for the Holy Spirit are tongues of flame, a dove, or wind. The flames of fire represent wisdom and knowledge. The dove represents love and peace. Wind reminds us of the power of the Spirit--in the same way, the Spirit of God can be our strength.

Which of the titles and symbols of the Holy Spirit helps you to better understand how the Holy Spirit is working in your life?
