Vatican City, Apr 17, 2013 / 11:09 am
The work of the Holy Spirit at the Second Vatican Council is not yet finished, Pope Francis said, because many in the Church are unwilling to fully embrace what God inspired in the council fathers.
In his homily at an April 16 Mass at St. Martha's Residence, the Pope observed that the Holy Spirit always "moves us, makes us walk and pushes the Church forward."
However, he said, we often respond by saying, "Don't bother us."
"We want to put the Holy Spirit to sleep," the Pontiff noted. "We want to 'tame' the Holy Spirit. And that doesn't work, because He is God. He is the wind that comes and goes and we know not from where."
