Do not quench the Spirit.
Do not despise prophetic utterances.
Test everything; retain what is good.
- Saint Paul (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21)
"Pope Francis invites all of us to share our experiences and listen to one another in a spirit of respect, dialogue, and prayer. When we are open to the Holy Spirit, we are changed -- together."
- Father Desmond Drummer
