The Merciful Lord gave the Holy Spirit on earth, and by the Holy Spirit was the Holy Church established.  The Holy Spirit unfolded to us not only the things of the earth, but those too which are of heaven.

Even children who have no learning at all, come to know the Lord by the Holy Spirit… There are some who spend their whole lives in trying to find out about the sun, or the moon or in seeking like knowledge; yet this is no profit to the soul.
