One of the most fascinating books on the Holy Spirit ever written, Archbishop Martinez reveals the secret of holiness. Step by step, he guides us to understand the gentle ways in which the Spirit acts in our lives. The author explains how the Spirit is present to us and leads us to the Father and the Son, especially through the virtues of faith, hope and charity. He then focuses on the seven gifts, which make us attentive to the promptings of the Holy Sprit. Along with the gifts, we discover the consoling fruits of the Spirit, such as joy, peace, and patience. Finally, Martinez crowns his work with a masterful explanation of the beatitudes, the summit of the Christian life.

Review: The Sanctifier: The Classic Work on the Holy Spirit

User Review  - Joseph - Goodreads

Twice I have read this volume. It is profoundly Christian and ineluctably Catholic. It has the clean tone of Catholic theology pre-Vatican II, before the obsessive defensiveness of modern fundamentalism. It is the voice of an ancient religion that knew its name. Read full review
