We are born with a mortal body, subject to the corruption of the tomb, and an immortal soul, designed to become a Holy Spirit’s Tabernacle at Baptism; therefore, we become body, soul and the Holy Spirit. Ironically, we generally care more about our body than our soul. It is the Almighty Father’s masterpiece, because He created us with infinite love at his own image and likeness, to be His children and inherit His Kingdom. God’s love is also immutable. At birth, God gives us a guardian angel to defend us against all dangers. The angel never leaves us and obtains for us abundant Grace.
The Comforter comes into our soul to remain there forever. He only leaves us if we commit a mortal sin, and then Satan takes over the soul. We should expel Satan as early as possible through Penance, so that the Holy Spirit might penetrate our soul and restore its glory. We become again a Holy Spirit’s Tabernacle for eternity.
The Comforter is personally in our souls, as He is in Heaven, to pour on us His Gifts if we correspond to His love. The Gifts will bear Fruits, if we surrender to the Spirit of God. The article Holy Spirit’s Gifts and Fruits introduces His Power. The presence of the Holy Spirit in our souls is even more amazing than the presence of Crist in the Eucharist, because it will end on the last day whereas the Holy Ghost will remain eternally in our souls.
“Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16)
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
“I shall ask the Father, and he will give you another Paraclete to be with you forever, the Spirit of truth whom the world can never accept since it neither sees nor knows him; but you know him, because he is with you, he is in you.” (John 14:16-17)
