Conscious of my own unworthiness and inconstancy, I desire to offer everything through thy maternal hands, and with childlike trust in thy loving care, I look to thee to assist me in the fulfillment of my resolutions. We sit with Christ on His throne as soon as we have surrendered all our crowns, and made Him sole and only ruler of our life and its possessions.

It is the sacred teachings on the all-inclusive inwardness of the Spirit. The mystery of the Redemption is recalled by the different stages of the Passion: the Agony in the Garden, the Scourging, the Crowning with Thorns, the Carrying of the Cross, the Crucifixion. Paul says in Ephesians 1:13-14: “In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.” This is a definitive statement about when the Holy Spirit comes into the life of the believer.
