PostSubject: Holy Spirit   Fri Jun 15, 2007 8:02 am

Hi

In the Prayer of Jesus in John 17:26 he says the following
"I have made your name known to them, and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them, and so that I may be in them"

Is this love the Holy Spirit?

Hi
yes definitly, the Love is the Holy Spirit. In the following quote from saint John of the Cross, we find one of the most beautifull explanations of this verse:
"Concerning the first, there are chiefly three exquisite qualities of love. The first is that the soul here loves God, not through itself but through him. This is a remarkable quality, for the soul loves through the Holy Spirit, as the Father and the Son love each other, according to what the Son himself declares through St. John: That the love with which you have loved me be in them and I in them [Jn. 17:26]. " (Livin Flame of Love B III,82)
