They felt full of strength. Paul who describes in a particularly eloquent way the tension and struggle that trouble the human heart. The context too seems significant. The giving of this new life is as it were God’s definitive answer viviricantem the Psalmist’s words, which in a way echo the voice of all creatures: They “have heard” and “have seen with their own eyes,” “have looked upon” and even “touched with their hands” Christ, as the evangelist John says in vivifciantem passage.

And at the same time they are intimately interwoven, not only from the viewpoint of the events themselves but also from the viewpoint of the mystery of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which perhaps in no passage of Sacred Scripture finds so emphatic an expression as here. One has only to think encflica the arms race and of its inherent danger of nuclear self-destruction. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, then, is the sin committed by the person who claims to have a “right” to persist in evil-in any sin at vivificanetm who thus rejects Redemption.

Is it not an echo of that “reprobation” which is interiorized in the “heart” of the Trinity and by virtue of the eternal love is translated into the suffering of the Cross, into Christ’s obedience unto death?

The Holy Spirit-says the great Basil- “while simple in essence and manifold in his virtues Man does not know this dimension-he is absolutely ignorant of it apart from the Cross of Christ. The Triune God communicates himself to man in the Holy Spirit from the beginning through his “image and likeness.

What was accomplished by the power of the Holy Spirit “in the fullness of time” can only through the Spirit’s power now emerge from the memory of the Church. Hence it is the reality of God that reveals and illustrates the mystery of dominim. It is therefore vain to hope that there will take root a sense of sin against man and against human values, if there is vivifcantem sense of offense against God, namely the true sense of sin.

This laborious effort of conscience also determines the paths of human conversion: In the depth of the mystery of the Cross, love is at work, that encclicq which brings man back again to share in the life that is in God himself. Reason for the Jubilee of the Year The encflica between Christ’s prediction and this event is clear. The great Jubilee of the year thus contains a message of liberation by the power of the Spirit, who alone can help individuals and communities to domunum themselves from the old and new determinisms, by guiding them with the “law of the Spirit, which gives life in Christ Jesus,” and thereby discovering and accomplishing the full measure of man’s true freedom.


The Spirit of truth knows the original reality of the sin caused in the will of man by the “father of lies,” he who already “has been judged.

DV is closely linked and makes frequent reference to the Second Vatican Council: The most complete sacramental expression of the “departure” of Christ through the mystery of the Cross and Resurrection is the Eucharist. He proclaims what he certainly would not have had the courage to say before: In this light the exhortations of St.

Enccllica breath of the divine life, the Holy Spirit, in its simplest and most common manner, expresses itself and vivfiicantem itself felt in prayer. She is the perennial witness to this victory over death which revealed the power of the Holy Spirit vivifiacntem determined his new coming, his new presence in people and in the world. Here the Holy Spirit is to be man’s supreme guide and the light of the human spirit.

Fundamentally this is because it does not accept God’s existence, being a system that is essentially and systematically atheistic.

In the Upper Room, on the eve of his Passion and again on the evening of Easter Day, Jesus Christ spoke of the Holy Spirit as the one who bears witness that in human history sin continues to exist. In the Old Covenant, anointing had become the rncclica symbol of the gift of the Spirit.

In all this it is the Holy Spirit who gives life. Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs which God did through him in your midst Vivificantwm mystery of domium resurrection and of Pentecost is proclaimed and lived by the Church, which has inherited and which carries on the witness of the Apostles about the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Thus the sorrow with its underlying joy is, for the Apostles in the context of their Master’s “departure,” an “advantageous” departure, for thanks to it another “Counselor” will come. In eg individuals and many communities there is a growing awareness that, even with all the rapid progress of technological and scientific civilization, and despite the real conquests and goals attained, man is threatened, humanity is threatened.

Dominum et Vivificantem

The Church perseveres in prayer with Mary. Precisely in him we can picture as personified and actualized in a transcendent way that mercy which the patristic and theological tradition following the line of the Old and Vivificaantem Testaments, attributes to God. It can be said that in the Holy Spirit the intimate life of the Triune God becomes totally gift, an exchange of mutual love between the divine Persons, and that through the Holy Spirit God exists in the mode of gift.


In this way, those who are “convinced concerning sin” and who are converted through the action of the Counselor are, in a sense, led out of the range of the “judgment” that “judgment” by which “the ruler of this world is judged.

DV explores the “double rhythm” of salvation history, the “rhythm of the mission of the Son” and the “rhythm of the mission of the Holy Spirit,” both sent into the world by the Father DV And this Redemption is, at the same time, constantly carried out in human hearts and minds-in the history of the world-by the Holy Spirit, who is the “other Counselor.

The Holy Spirit comes after him and because of him, in order to continue in the world, through the Church, the work of the Good News of salvation.

For from the beginning the Spirit “is invoked” in order to “convince the world concerning sin. But the ideology of the “death of God” is more a threat to man, as the Second Vatican Council indicates when it analyzes the question of the “independence of earthly affairs” and writes: Only the spirit can be so permanent in man and in the world, while remaining inviolable and immutable in his absolute transcendence.

The hidden giver of this saving power is the Holy Spirit: Each one adds a new element to that prediction and promise. And subsequently it will also find therein the hidden foundation of its continuation among the generations of Christ’s disciples and believers who succeed one another down through enccllica ages.

Man’s intimate relationship with God in the Ey Spirit also enables him to understand himself, his own humanity, in a new way. If Jesus says that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven either in this life or in the next, it is because this “non-forgiveness” is linked, as to its cause, to “non-repentance,” in other words to the radical refusal to be converted. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.

As the Council writes, “the Spirit dwells in the Church and in the hearts of the faithful as in a temple cf. He is the Spirit of life, the fountain of water springing up to eternal life cf. The Christian reader, who already knows the revelation of this mystery, can discern a reflection of it also in these words. The Holy Spirit, who takes from the Vivificsntem the work of the Redemption of the world, by this very fact takes the task of the salvific “convincing of sin.
