❥✞❥ “Just as the word of God comes to us in the body of Christ, in his Eucharistic body and in the body of the Scriptures, through the working of the Holy Spirit, so too it can only be truly received and understood through that same Spirit.” (Pope Benedict XVI) “we cannot come to an understanding of Scripture without the assistance of the Holy Spirit who inspired it.” (St. Jerome)
