St. Innocent of Alaska on the reality shown to us by the Holy Spirit.
There are many Christians who will claim that all sorts of things have been revealed to them by the Holy Spirit, but St. Innocent of Alaska explains what the Holy Spirit really shows us:
But when the Holy Spirit dwells in the heart of a person, He shows him all his inner poverty and weakness, and the corruption of his heart and soul, and his separation from God; and with all his virtues and righteousness. He shows him his sins, his sloth and indifference regarding the salvation and good of people his self-seeking in his apparently most disinterested virtues, his coarse selfishness even where he does not suspect it. To be brief, the Holy Spirit shows him everything as it really is.
