The Apostleship of the Holy Ghost On August 30, 1924, His Holiness Pope Pius XI in reply to a petition by the Very Rev. Felix of Jesus, Superior-General of the Missionaries of the Holy Ghost, issued the following Indulgences: Plenary-On day of reception into the Apostleship and at the hour of death. On the Feasts of Pentecost and Corpus Christi. Partial- Seven years and seven quarantines on the first Monday of each month, for assisting at exercises held on that day in hor of the Holy Ghost. 100 days for each act performed in conformity with the spirit of the Apostleship. The world kws t the Holy Ghost. Many pious souls have devotion towards Him. He is, as it were, forgotten almost by all, and He is, nevertheless, the Soul of the Church. Leo XIII, in his Encyclical upon the Holy Ghost, strongly urges all the faithful to love this Divine Spirit. He exhorts al1 Bishops and priests to preach this sanctifying devotion with a new and burning zeal. Jesus, before His Ascension into Heaven, commends this devotion to His Apostles, promising them the coming of the Holy Ghost, Who will teach you all things (St. John xiv. 26). The Holy Ghost is perpetually at work in the Church, which undertakes thing of importance without invoking His aid in the solemn hymn, Veni Creator. The Holy Ghost guides the Church and each individual soul. We see what power He has when we consider what the Apostles were before and after His coming in the Supper-room. How many souls desirous of perfection are, as it were, at a standstill, because they do t invoke the Holy Ghost, relegating Him to oblivion in the whole course of their spiritual life. Desiring to be holy, yet scarcely ever thinking of the Sanctifier! Our priests, hear and give heed to the voice of Leo XIII, and by every means: in the pulpit, in the confessional, in conversation, by means of the press, etc., preach this most precious devotion. Let the faithful hearken to the priests, who, obedient to the voice of the Sovereign Pontiff, have become Apostles of such a sublime devotion. They will soon experience a great change in their souls. Soon new horizons will open to their view, and they will marvel at their rapid progress, if they set themselves to invoke with frequence the Divine Dove, the Source of all light, of all consolation and of all strength. The Holy Ghost will multiply His holy inspirations in their souls. He will fill them with His gifts, and He Himself will abide in them, to be their Guide. Happy the souls devoted to the Holy Ghost! They are already beginning their heaven here upon earth, meriting choice graces, and receiving special strength to enable them to correspond with His divine inspirations.
